Job Opening at Boston College

Are you an educator? Can you teach English?

If so, then today’s your lucky day!

Apparently, there’s an opening for an adjunct English professor at Boston College after a left-wing educator resigned his post in light of this year’s commencement speaker.

In the Boston Globe today, Professor Steve Almond wrote an open letter to the president of Boston College, William P. Leahy, announcing his decision.

"I am writing to resign my post as an adjunct professor of English at Boston College. I am doing so — after five years at BC, and with tremendous regret — as a direct result of your decision to invite Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to be the commencement speaker at this year’s graduation."

Human Events U has been reporting on the recent protests at Boston College over Condi’s planned visit, speech and honorary law degree.

Professor Almond adds, "But I am not writing this letter simply because of an objection to the war against Iraq. My concern is more fundamental. Simply put, Rice is a liar."

Almond goes on to cite an example where Rice apparently "lied."

He then concludes his letter with, "I cannot, in good conscience, exhort my students to pursue truth and knowledge, then collect a paycheck from an institution that displays such flagrant disregard for both. I would like to apologize to my students and prospective students. I would also urge them to investigate the words and actions of Rice, and to exercise their own First Amendment rights at her speech."

Sniff…sniff… (tear).

What can I say… GOOD RIDDANCE!
