Regarding the resignation of Dr. Teresa Sullivan as president of the University of Virginia, I suspect the main reason she was let go is that she is not one of the boys. Remember, UVa was one of the last public universities to admit women to its undergraduate school, and it did so only after the threat of lawsuit.

Traditions die hard. The real shocker is not that she was ousted but that she was chosen in the first place.
