    Campus Reform, a project of the Arlington, Va.-based Leadership Institute, has a video featuring the professor telling his students that Republicans want to prevent "black people" from voting. He added that "this country still is full of closet racists" and described Republicans as "a bunch of dead white people -- or dying white people" (http://tinyurl.com/lve4te7). To a student who had apparently displayed displeasure with those comments, Professor Penn barked, "You can frown if you want." He gesticulated toward the student and added, "You look like you're frowning. Are you frowning?" When the professor's conduct was brought to the attention of campus authorities, MSU spokesman Kent Cassella said, "At MSU it is important the classroom environment is conducive to a free exchange of ideas and is respectful of the opinions of others."

    Well, it is MSU, not UM. The students at MSU only get worked up if there is a shortage of alcoholic beverages in the greater Lansing area.

    Given this professor's rant, we'll know why there's a shortage. If he was sober when he made those statements, including the threats, then he needs to be fired. He's everything that is wrong with this country's education system.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
