During today's Mechanical Engineering 060 class, Professor Dr. William Brower
began by sharing a joke about the current sniper situation. He then lifted up
his arm and revealed a yellow, Lance Armstrong-style bracelet. He read what he
had written onto the bracelet - Adopt A Nazi - to the class.Two different
students in the class confirm this story.So, in the name of not offending
members of the Marquette community, Marquette confiscates our CR supplies and
table. Then a professor tosses aside all political correctness and basic
standards of human decency to say and show this in a class!?!? AMAZING! Someone should have attended yesterday's speech in the Varsity Theatre by Gandhi's
grandson, who talked about respect for others!
Well I decided I would look into this brilliant engineering mind. It seems he has been highly rewarded for his academic efforts, with grants and awards from the likes of Briggs and Straton, Johnson Controls, and yes, even our own "nazi" government, in the form of NASA. I will surely try and contact these organizations to find out if they condone this type of behavior, and if they currently have dealings with Dr. Brower.
