Interesting personal story of fired professor

Professor has provocative class discussion on VA Tech shooting. Professor gets fired. Professor posts 4 clips of explanation of his story.

Two points:

1. Obviously, I think that political correctness is rampant and dumb. It has a numbing effect on education, creativity, and debate. Unfortunately, college campuses are breeding grounds for political correctness where they should be ‘walled gardens’ attempting to prevent its ill effects.

2. Kudos to the professor, Nicholas Winset, for using YouTube to give his side of the story, and demonstrating what an educational tool YouTube can be. Because of the instant ability to publish and broadcast, it serves as a great case study tool. Or to borrow a phrase, “great for Monday quarterbacking.”
