A little unasked-for advice...

Here's a little unasked-for advice to the editors of the Chronicle of Higher Education:

If you would like to discourage the image of professors as tenured radicals, please refrain from publishing issues containing such headlines as "Conservative to Teach Constitutional Law" and "Man Will Lead Women's Studies," both found on the same page of the August 12th Chronicle.

See, guys, most folks don't think that hiring men and allowing conservatives to teach should be a newsworthy event. Please avoid caricaturing yourselves (and the rest of us) again in the future.
