My Meeting with David Theroux

by K Lloyd Billingsley

“On a Monday morning in August 2011, I was suddenly summoned to a conference call. A fellow employee said my services were no longer required. I was then handed a packet, and in the style of William Holden in Network, told to vacate the premises by 1:30 p.m. Several colleagues were also sent packing that day, and this had been cast as a ‘downsizing.’ … A former colleague recommended me for a post that would have required no move. The boss was favorable but then the former colleague took the very position he allegedly wanted me to have. About that time, when it seemed things couldn’t get much worse, I got a call from David Theroux of the Independent Institute. For that kindness, I will be forever thankful.” (04/29/22)
