Man Asks Woman For Date At Carnegie, Gets Barred 1 1/2 Years Later

John, a member of the Music Program at Carnegie, was recently barred for something he claims he had done a year and a half ago. He had asked Sindi, the Assistant Volunteer Co-ordinator, for a date.

Sindia apparently told the Volunteer Co-ordinator, Colleen Gorrie, and then others got involved and John got barred.

Board member Rachel Davis, a.k.a. Rosetta, who is also a member of the Music Program, started asking questions -- just as she had asked questions when Bill Simpson was barred for allegedly blogging. John was reinstated.

One question raised here is: Why the double standard? When a female worker at Carnegie was accused of serial sexual relationships with vulnerable clients, she was never genuinely investigated. Witnesses weren't contacted. In fact, Director Ethel Whitty acted as though the people who spoke up were the problem.

Another question: Since Sindi and Colleen lock the doors of the computer room on a semi-regular basis, claiming that they couldn't manage to get a volunteer, couldn't their labour time have been put to better use?

I find it sad that I feel this must be written and posted. Some person has made it look like I sat down for an interview for publication, and that is certainly not the case. I do not appreciate the names of people I hold in high regard being bandied about, and made the target of some spirit of ill will.
The whole of the staff at Carnegie do wonders with what they are given; the Carnegie itself is a refuge from madness and mayhem outside, and I wish it a long and productive life.

You claim, "Some person has made it look like I sat down for an interview for publication...."

Generally when somebody sits down for an interview, their words are quoted verbatim. There are no quotes from you in this article.

An attempt was made to preserve your confidentiality. Even though we were given your last name, we chose to use just your first name and last initial. Your last initial has now been deleted.

We are told that you consider the article accurate though.

The reason you are brown-nosing to staff who got you barred is that you are an illegal alien from the U.S. living in Canada who has been escorted to the border once already and who sometimes uses crime to survive. That's a good reason to stay on the good side of Carnegie staff, Johnny. Johnny be good.

This seems like the kind of ad hominem attack I thought wasn't allowed on the blog. RS, please remove it. Please.
