University of Illinois denies Bill Ayers emeritus status -


After all of these years, I am still shocked and dismayed that Ayres got a teaching position, tenure, and the respect (at least in part) of the university community, considering his actions and the things he advocated as a founding member of the Weathermen/Weather Underground. Ayres was a domestic terrorist, and while I agree that people have the ability to change and repent their actions, nothing in this man's career or writing suggests he regrets much of anything, other than that he "didn't do enough."
