They have to make do with things like tenure and unearned moral authority. Hence the following from Todd Starnes:
A Suffolk University law professor has issued a blistering e-mail calling plans to collect care packages for U.S. troops “shameful.” Professor Michael Avery also questioned the intent of an American flag hanging in the law school’s atrium.
“I think it is shameful that it is perceived as legitimate to solicit in an academic institution for support for men and women who have gone overseas to kill other human beings,” Avery wrote in an e-mail to his colleagues. “The United States may well be the most war prone country in the history of civilization.”
The professor was critical of a program called, “Packages for the Troops.” It was an effort within the law school to collect care packages for the nation’s military.
Gee, Professor, most of us get over “Nerds vs. Jocks” within a decade or two of graduating from high school.
I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but… why can’t this jerk be more like Justin Timberlake? Read this. Well done, Mr. Timberlake. This almost makes up for The Love Guru. Almost.
