Only liberal professors think?

After reading Scott Johnson's letter ("What to do about liberal professors," March 2), I can only hope that those professors would actually teach him to think. His commentary is nothing but a non sequitur. To state that professors are professors because they think through issues and that is why they are liberal is ridiculous logic.

So, we can conclude that anyone who thinks well has to be liberal? As a college professor for 23 years, I am proud of my conservative ideals. I guess I have to hand my degree back since I am no longer a thinker under Mr. Johnson's "logic."
