One response to “Professors’ Disease: Worse than swine flu and far more common”

  1. Fred Urshgur

    Methinks this disease might be aggravated by the continued shrinkage of actual power held by professors in higher ed. They have little real power over curriculum anymore, much less control over the staffing of positions in their departments or the planning for perpetual “budget crisis” by administrators who rain dictates down on them like reprobates peeing on ants in an anthill. And heaven forbid should a sensitive flower in their class complain that they are “creating an uncomfortable environment” in their classroom. Grasping at any remaining figment of power imaginable may be the sad denouement of this illness you illustrate.
