I was recently asked to be on a special judicial committee at our college, where we decided the fate of a longtime faculty member accused of having a sexual affair with a student, who after nearly a year of the affair, came forward to the Dean.

I sat in on the hearings, discussed the impropriety, tsk'd tsk'd when it was appropriate, and then voted his tenure revoked along with everyone else on the committee.

All the while I remembered that 10 years ago I did the same thing with a student, but in my case there were no hard feelings, no accusations, no repercussions.

I wonder why I got away with it and he didn't.
