A most unappetizing picture to go with that article, which was pretty unappetizing itself. I wonder what she thinks of manager/subordinate affairs in the non-academic world? Because those are a pretty close equivalent and I've seen one or two of those go nova in a way which hurt a lot of people.


The restraint thing seems obvious to me (someone, we can expect that high school teachers exercise it but professors are not capable of same?), so I am with you there. I love your point about the fundamental misconception about academic even among many people in it that being a professor means they get to do exactly what they want at all times. Not so. Not even close.
