'Til the cows drive home.

Lately I've been considering--what factors have converged to shape the unfortunate personality of many academics--back-stabbing, militaristically-hierarchical, striving to elicit bad feelings (humiliation, self-doubt) in students.

In my own case, it was those 642 days I spent as a hostage to the last left-wing west-coast radical group (LLeWWCoRG).  I resisted their diabolical brain-washing techniques far beyond what a typical person could endure.  Now look at me.

I was in the feminist branch of LLeWWCorG. I think I must have subjected you to torture.  Now I just spend my days procrastinating and writing manifestos about the EAC (evil academic conspiracy).

OK, (assuming you get the very obscure historical reference) that last post was in poor taste considering current events this weekend. Just popped into my head when I saw the open-ended post title.
Juuust missed the delete timer.
:(
Apologies.

Weren't you the one with the Bell Hooks tattoo?

God, how I hated to see that tattoo.
