BTW: More than a third of David Horowitz' "100 most dangerous professors" have signed the petition (36 of the original 108), which we prefer to see as an indication that more than 70 of the petition's signers were previously unnoticed. We take back what we've said about self-identification; sometimes it's a good thing. Also BTW: We count only six academics from mathematics and other "hard sciences" on the signers list.
Update: The Denver Post has an article about the petition containing a single fact not available here—and that fact is wrong, to whit, the DP's subhead says "Seventy of those tabbed in a book as 'dangerous academics' say CU's acts are a threat to freedom," when in reality, of the 168 current signatories, only 36 are on Horowitz' list.
* Despite the escalating signature count, only 36 of Horowitz' "dangerous professors" have signed the petition so far. We're noticing a growing number of self-described "independent scholars" and alleged academics from other countries (Turkey, Canada, U.K., and Italy among them) are signing.
OT: at least 80 Wisconsin state legistators are calling for the firing of 9-11 conspiracy theorist and parttime Islamic Studies professor Kevin Barrett.
