Of all my profs, only one was pro-US. Some of the most anti-US profs actually came from the United States to teach here (Ontario).

One openly stated that he was a Marxist. (He's from Kentucky.) I found it inappropriate of him to have done so. 1) He should've kept it to himself 2) I don't like Marxism. I did get an A, but always felt very uncomfortable during his lectures.

It's usually the people who have no clue what it's like living in a communist state that are the most ardent Marxists.

['Of all my profs..., only one was pro-US..."]

Professors shouldn't be stating their political positions.

I know because I am a tenured faculty member in a statistics department at a major university. And, quite simply, I don't have time for it in the classroom...It's tough enough to get students to understand what a "p" value is.
