More on UCONN Professor “Suspension”

The Hartford Courant has published numerous comments by students and others regarding the “suspension” of Professor Birmingham.  Meriting special attention is the comment from a student enrolled in the class in question, see UCONN law student, Wallingford, CT.  His comment should be regarded as weighty since he was there, and he reports that law students have been left out in the cold with no class to go to.  If such be the case, then once again students are being screwed by administrators who consider themselves as acting as agents of students in the goal of protecting their right not to be offended.
