    Totally WRONG. Nothing will happen; too many people feel the way he did but won't express it like that. I wouldn't.

    eta---and with her young children there? That guy is an obnoxious boor.

    It is unusual that there were no arrests. People on airplanes have been arrested for far less.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Perhaps the US system differs from that in England.

    As for contractual clauses, even the US system retained an exception for dismissal with just cause.

    This isn't a big enough deal. You are nit picking.

    On the contrary, it's exactly what bringing the university into disrepute refers to.

    Hunter College, where my son taught physics, is part of the larger CUNY (City University of New York), which has several branches in each borough of the city (there are 5 boroughs: Brooklyn (Kings); Manhattan (New York County); Staten Island (Richmond); Queens & The Bronx. It's huge, it's mammouth & they all hate DT (Delirium Tremens, or Don't Trust).

    Tenured professors do way worse than this. Tenure is tenure; it's very hard to get & very hard to lose once gotten. My son taught physics & astronomy at many branches throughout the University; I went to several of it's colleges before I graduated from the Private--NYU (New York University).

    This man's actions have done nothing, nada, to Hunter's reputation. We've already forgotten about it, even if you haven't. I'm sure Lady Ivanka has forgotten it too.

    I see your words but I suspect you've blinded yourself to reality. Of course it has damaged the university's reputation, and that damage will remain for decades unless they take some form of action even if it's only an expression of disavowal. The reports showing up on Google will make certain that the indicent can't be forgotten, the world is no longer dependent on the fickle recall of The United States of Amnesia which you appear to be celebrating.

    What I find surprising is that the values of the Enlightenment seem this year to have disintegrated among those people I would previously have expected to remain courteous. Your Hunterian professor is among them. To deliberately set out to harass anyone on the grounds that she's a politician's child is despicable behavior. You know it, I know it, everyone knows it. It's not what we do. It's no different to tarring and feathering, or burning out a witch from her cottage. It's backward, it has blurred the boundary between the good guys and the bad guys it's indistinguishable from alt-right scummery.

    You've worn selectively prejudiced blinkers since you arrived here, it clouds your capacity to actually think and be honest every time you let them get in the way.
