[Phys-L] Re: FL stamps out dictator professors

"I find most of them rather endearing in their clueless approach to things."

The above is very similar to a statement an ex lover and friend (now
also ex) sent me. That ad hominem was the straw. Lakoff * has an
explanation for why their (cluless faculty) approach works and is,
therefore, not cluless. An example: [Remember, a generalization but
largely true.] Republicans let the baby cry; Democrats pick the baby up
and comfort. The latter results in happier people, tho maybe less wealthy.

I won't object if some one among you sets up a list for Physicists'
philosophy and politics.

* e.g. Moral Politics

bc, daughter rarely cried, as we anticipated.

p.s. Why do you think there are so many lefties in academia?

If my college decided to eliminate all the "leftist" professors, there would

right leaning politics in the faculty is totally out of control, but I don't
see firing all the liberals as a solution. Actually, I find most of them
rather endearing in their clueless approach to things.

Please excuse the cross reposting. Here is an interesting issue. No=
w if
they voted to stamp out bad teaching we would all be in trouble. Of =
they do not consider that leftists could sue the rightist professors,=
what about the evolutionists suing the creationist professors.
