Good Riddance to Radical Boston College Prof Resigning over Condi

Somehow we had a feeling that the Boston College English prof, who was rash enough to resign in protest because the "liar" Condi Rice was going to be their graduation speaker, was radical in more than one direction. Steve Almond's wrote to BC's president: "I cannot, in good conscience, exhort my students to pursue truth and knowledge, then collect a paycheck from an institution that displays such flagrant disregard for both."

But are we to credit such a statement from a sex-obsessed professor of English who writes stories on "Anal Sex in Estonia" where we learn the French slang for sodomy? Is this what students get for $40,000+ per year at this Catholic university? We think BC will be much better off without this fellow teaching their students how to think and write as he does:

"Anal sex, if tactfully broached, must be made to seem sophisticated. This is accomplished, for instance, by referring to it in the French vernacular (e.g. touché du chocolat). Pain is expressed by means of different phonemes in Estonia. What sounds, to the Western ear, like a sharp moan of pleasure (phonetically: ouwhaahee) can be indicative of soft tissue trauma. Displays of affection are discouraged during the sex act."
