Troupe Faces Reporters

Troupe told a colleague last week that “he decided to step down after the university decided to suspend him for a year without pay or benefits.” Troupe told reporters that he is a person who faces up to his mistakes, but while some of Troupe’s supporters were angry that the university didn’t stick up for the poet, others seemed relieved that the affair is over. “I am relieved he chose to do the honorable thing by resigning. He’s a great poet, but he needs to be a great poet somewhere else.”
