    For the academics - here's how you get to go on leave. Covid, the Moon, Minorities.

    Ferris State University announced on Monday that Thomas E. Brennan, an assistant professor of physical science, had been placed on administrative leave after he posted racist, anti-Semitic, and homophobic remarks on Twitter and disrupted a staff meeting by calling Covid-19 a “leftist stunt,” claiming death rates in the United States had been exaggerated.
    Here's the professor's letter explaining what he tweeted: http://www.quantumthom.com/LetterToFerrisCommunity.pdf

    It takes all kinds.

    PS - started to get ads for giant farm tractors. Now how did I get on that list?

    In his letter, the professor also states he believes the atom bomb and moon landings were faked.

    At first I thought the good Professor was maybe Jeremy Corbin, but the second half of this sentence made me feel better about his anti-semitism.

    Further evidence that an advanced degree doesn’t mean that one’s mind works well.

    This is by and far one of the truest statements I've read all day.

    Covid is producing some fascinating results without infecting people.

    It's been 10+ years since I saw someone actively and openly deny the Holocaust. But just yesterday on IG, I saw not one, but three Holocaust deniers in the comments section of someone I follow. Seems like covid is an excuse for the weirdos to crawl out of hiding.
    Seriously guys, are we not doing 'phrasing' anymore?

    Not that I'd recommend it, but apparently you don't watch CSPAN.

    J/K, she doesn't deny the Holocaust -- she just isn't clear on her position regarding it.

    Deny, hell, she’d sign up for round 2 if she could.

    I always wondered about that. One of my friends referred to that as being educated beyond one's intelligence. Of course I wouldn't know.
    Awaiting the new order.
