I have never heard of either, but then I pay no attention to either media or (SF) art.

I do note that both look very male and very white. The Star Wars citation was special.

Should the whole barrel of apples be discarded because some were bad?

The expression literally says one bad apple spoils the barrel. That's what it means.

I see Frenkel's no longer listed on the concom page (but Russell still is).

"I learned that one of the Members had made choices that upset people in the past, and how it was handled was not the best. I believe that the damage that was done has been contained and separated from the convention."


Just no.

In fact, there's not enough no in the world to make up the amount of no that statement merits.

Believe what you like; but don't come complaining to us when it splashes back on you, Michael. Your selective blindness will not protect you from the people who actually know what happened.

Guests of Honor are supposed to be a draw for the con, aren't they?

I've been living under a rock lately, and just re-subscribed to James' feed, so this is all new to me.

But... Frenkel? Again? Wasn't he fired from an editing job at a major scifi publisher for being a serial harasser, a few years back? WTF would anyone have him on a ConCom or any other "official" position in a Con? One would think he might be just a bit of a public liability for a Con...

Yup, that's really not going to impress anyone.
