"Send that suggestion to Mary Ann Glendon and the other signers of that statement. Lets see if they can force the rest of the faculty to put up or shut up."
I sent the recommendation to Professor Snead. His email is email@example.com and appears on the masthead of the letter.

Thanks for doing that. Mary Ann Glendon, one of the signers,
distinguished herself with an act of great nobility two years ago: Mary Ann Glendon, the former United States ambassador to the Vatican who was set to receive the University of Notre Dames Laetare Medal at the schools commencement on May 17, has written to University president Fr. John Jenkins saying that she will not attend the ceremony or accept the award after all. Glendon says her refusal stems from the Universitys persistence in choosing to honor Obama with an honorary degree, despite U.S. Bishops Conference policy that forbids honoring pro-abortion politicians.
