Ethical Dilemma, page 62

It’s unfair to ignore the clerk with the high test scores in favor of someone with lousy test scores, but test scores do not necessarily prove competence at supervision. I would go with option 3, taking into account both test scores and previous performance and experience. I would not risk putting my department into the hands of someone whose skills on the job day-to-day I hadn’t reviewed and approved of. It’s not ethical to just give Charlotte the job, and it’s not good for department morale to give the job to the newbie based on test scores and ignore Charlotte. I would come up with a better set of selection criteria.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
