Advocating fragging can be a career-limiting move

Remember the grammar-challenged English professor in New Jersey who tried to bully a student because she was promoting an upcoming lecture by a member of the military? Now he's an ex-professor, according to a statement by the school:

The College became aware of the impact of the instructor�s comments when it was inundated with local and national opinions from the public. Responding to that, the Board of Trustees and administration moved as quickly as possible to review and address the issue. A board meeting was scheduled for last night to present the issue to the Board; however, while the administration was preparing for that meeting, the adjunct instructor Mr. John Daly submitted his resignation. The Board of Trustees voted to accept his resignation at last night�s meeting.

Also interesting is the school's stated intent to review and draft "tolerance policies" for staff. Apparently, they're taking Rebecca Beach's advice to put people like Daly through "sensitivity training" seriously.

Daly, who wrote to Beach that "[r]eal freedom will come when soldiers in Iraq turn their guns on their superiors," just learned an important lesson: being a one-man PR disaster for your employer is not the fast track to career advancement.
