I have to agree. By the time it gets to the point someone needs to be fired, I'm pissed off enough at their shit that I enjoy it.
Absolutely...tenure Should be outlawed....
I tend to disagree in theory, without tenure only SJW types will be professors at many schools and very quickly. Though there is a counter-argument that tenure actually works in the reverse way in that it encourages group-think and whatever theory is trending and conformism to gain it.
Sounded like he got to keep that big bonus they gave him and he's hoping to hook on with AWS.
Professors argue for equality...tenure is elitism...
Anyone want to talk about the BellGabber most likely to be featured in the news and in a not good way? Casio doesn't count.
Not a 'gabber, but you brought something to mind I'd not thought of in years. Back in the early days of the internet, the Univ of Iowa launched one of the first, and ultimately most used, bbs sites on the web, ISCA BBS. One of the most prolific posters on the bbs was a guy who went by the name "Starcade". He was something of a self-important computer dweeb, but that wasn't all that uncommon in those days. Long story short, he had a thing for teen idol Debbie Gibson, and eventually began stalking her. He wound up getting arrested trying to sneak into a venue where she was performing, telling the police he was angry she had not answered any of his cards/letters etc. He got big time news coverage, and I think there was a magazine article written about him. Guy got put away for several years as I recall.
what was his name?
His last name was Faulkner, don't recall the first. I remember his family name only because it was the same as the first female to attend The Citadel, a huge topic of conversation on the bbs at the time.
I forgot about the "clean up your act" angle on the story. He must have been apoplectic when she did the Playboy pictorial several years later. Maybe he'll show up on one of Oprah's "Where Are They Now" programs.
With Midnight in Martinez spreading out to be more of a gossip show I thought this thread could use a bump and I know Chefist is too shy to do it.
Too shy? He's a step below Falkie on the self promotion scale.
No, it's just that most of the talk always leads back to George...then the thread gets rolled into Musings...so just to keep things simple I post the stuff there...that's all...
