I Guess I'm "Naive," Too

I'm not a conservative (but then, neither is Glenn Reynolds) and I've never been a big fan of Erwin Chemerinski (or at least his political views--I know nothing about him as a person), but I do agree that he was treated shabbily. Regardless of what Bill Quick thinks.

I think that non-"liberals" can sympathize with this kind of academic McCarthyism in a way that "liberals" cannot, because they rarely experience it.

Site must be overloaded. I doubt if it's due to me, though--probably the Instalanche...

It's working now. Thanks.

The real mistake was made when someone hired Chancellor Drake. Of course, this will likely be a situation where professor(s) of even more liberal leanings will be brought in to underline the notion that firing Chemerinski wasn't a political decision.

Institutional reputation is a university's "coin of the realm". Drake trashed it, and should go.

And I say that strictly from an organizational perspective. In other words, "it's just business".
