Here's how things look like Inside Higher Education these days:
Dec. 27: Professor’s Hunger Strike Ultimatum
"A professor who was denied tenure at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has vowed to start a hunger strike on February 5 outside the provost’s office.
“I will either see the provost resign and my hard-earned tenure granted at MIT, or I will die defiantly right outside his office,” James L. Sherley, who teaches biological engineering, wrote in a letter to colleagues [...]."
Found via The World's Fair's post MIT professor denied tenure will start a hunger strike. Don't miss the comments on that post :-)
Is he also going to hold his breath until he turns blue?

Why is he waiting until February 5th? Does he have an incredible stockpile of holiday leftovers he can't stand to miss out on?

Okay, okay, I admit, was just looking for an occasion to use this Dummy Book Generator.
