Michigan Ferris State University professor lands on the wrong planet
A professor at Ferris State University in Michigan landed on the wrong planet this weekend. He is now on administrative leave.
The Washington Post reported on this professor just a couple of hours ago:
Some college students in Michigan might have expected their professor to cover the usual topics in a video that kicks off the semester this week: attendance, grade, plagiarism. But Barry Mehler gave them much more than the basics.
Mehler, a history professor at Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Michigan, told his students that he didn’t want to know anything about them, not even their names, because “you are just vectors of disease to me.”

The WaPo continues:
Mehler has been placed on administrative leave while Ferris State University investigates the incident. In a statement to The Washington Post, the university’s chancellor, David Eisler, said he was “shocked and horrified” by the video.
“It is profane, offensive and disturbing and in no way reflects our University or its values,” he said through a school spokesman, who declined to comment further.
Professor Mehler began his video as if landing on Earth from another planet. Maybe he had. Then it says this:
I stand before you today in debt to no human rooster. I work a fucking paid union job and no lame administrator is going to tell me how to teach my classes because I’m a fucking full professor.
