When my co-workers first read about the marido in The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America, not knowing the source, they said that it was a nice piece about his accomplishments. His accomplishments! Were they surprised when they found out what book it came from? You bet!
His “offenses”? Opposing free trade policies in Latin America. Working with Historians Against the War. Being an independent-thinking peace-loving human. He doesn’t proselytize in class. He does live out his values and beliefs.
There are professors who feel like they should have been included and who say they’re left out. The research was weak and random, mostly pulled from web sites. Who got in and who didn't was a crap shoot.
And his students? Here are a couple of comments:
I just found out you were featured as one of the 101 most dangerous academics in America - and that is frikkin cool!!!! Congratulations.
When Joe told me you were on the list of 101 most dangerous professors, I cracked up! I think it's awesome, but mostly funny, and am proud to say I had you for a class....
So there you have it.
