    In light of the actions taken by the NCAA in the Penn State scandal, here’s a question for you: Do you think that if a professor of, say, economics, was discovered to be a serial sex abuser of young boys, that the university’s economics department would be shut down? If you answered “of course not,” I think you’re right. It would be ridiculous to do any such thing. But if you answered “that depends,” then you might want to consider the case of Scott Ward, a University of Pennsylvania marketing professor who just a few short years ago was sentenced...

Kline, July 22, 2009 We have written about film studies and English professors who come up with novel theories about cinematic masterpieces without bothering to check the archived papers of the directors, writers and producers of those films to see if their hypotheses were the filmmakers’ original intentions. For example, the English professor at Penn could have checked the letters of the film’s creator that are stored at BYU before theorizing that King Kong was an allegory for miscegenation. The 1933 film’s producer clearly stated that the movie’s scenes in which the gorilla...

That's what caused her to join the more than 3,200 people - including eight others affiliated with Penn - in signing a recent national petition in support of Ayers. The education professor is currently under attack from Republican nominee John McCain's campaign for his connection to a group called the Weather Underground that conducted several bombings in the 1970s as part of the anti-Vietnam War movement.

Smirnoff says he plays 230 shows for a quarter (m) million fans a year. Thirteen years ago,...

She earned laughs from the graduates by taking pictures of them from the podium and then by recalling her own years at Yale.

Dover recently instituted a policy requiring teachers to preface biology lectures with an alternative to the evolutionary theory of biological diversity. Known as intelligent design, the alternative idea incorporates many tenets of creationism and posits that living organisms are so complex that a divine being must have created them. Paul Sniegowski, an assistant professor of biology at Penn, argued that the Dover District's...
