This guy's got practice testing positive for diseases, that's how he can handle it with such dignity.
I’ve tested positive for Covid. I’ve had mild symptoms, but I’m doing fine overall and keeping myself busy at home.   I’m grateful to be vaccinated and boosted, which has kept my case mild, and I urge everyone to do the same, especially as we move into the winter months.

...But if parts of the Cathedral desert you, put on the bulletproof vest: say there wasn't data yet to know that your revolutionary attacks on common sense & the social fabric were wrong. Condemn the critics for not moving on & for having leapt to judgment before the data were in

Cultural Left just dominates the epistemic game now in an impressive way. They use the "the best defense is a good offense" approach. 1) Do something unprecedented (transing or masking kids, imposing lockdowns). ...

The bar for being a public intellectual has never been lower. Can’t wait to read this guy’s book on ‘progress.’ That’s gonna be some real heavy stuff there.

TLDR: There are some Republicans and Floridians who know DeSantis a little better than some of his national media boosters, and they’re basically like:

Megan Figueroa works at the Univ of Arizona. She is a public employee. Quite simply, she should be fired. It's a testament to how low academia is fallen that a person would openly boast that, when asked to peer review, she employs ideological filters like "dangerousness."
I had a paper analyzing COVID burden rejected on grounds that it "could disrupt the public health message". Peer-review in the wrong hands is not a quality-control filter, it's an ideological purity filter.

She is admitting to academic misconduct. And she has no fear that she will face any negative repercussions for it. In that confidence, alas, she is probably correct. It is intolerable that the public subsidizes, both directly and indirectly, this person as she abuses her perch.

Unless such wrongdoers are forced out of academia en masse, it's folly to talk about the situation improving. To think that we can persuade these folks to behave better, or that the public's growing contempt will push unis to be more sensible, is naive.
Replying to @TShampling
Nothing we say will ever convince such people to stop subordinating scholarship to demographics, to respect academic freedom, to put learning and research above political point-scoring. Their whole careers and self-conceptions rely on *never grasping these values*.

Every day many academics come on this website and more or less openly admit that they subordinate their academic duties to politics. Unless we can find a way to punish them for this basic betrayal of their professional vocation, it will keep happening.

And no, this is not a free speech issue. If you came on here and announced you'd falsified data in a study, appropriate processes would commence. The same should happen here. This person has violated a professional trust.

I guess the activists were right in their own way about 'no justice, no peace'

And this, my god. The rate of gun homicides among Black men is right back to where it was at the height of the early 90's wave of violence. Keep that in mind the next time someone tries to minimize the current resurgence.

Unis were better: before the therapeutic/student life apparatus. before DEI. before '--- studies' depts. before the sex bureaucracy. before sensitivity trainings. No one sensible likes these innovations. And yet they've run a successful scorched-earth campaign through higher ed.

the height of anti-scientific, irresponsible hubris to have suspected lockdowns caused harm before the studies came in.

And so much the worse…
A lot of debate about whether SBF is a cynical fraudster or a deadly earnest moralist; the recently-unearthed Shakespeare-bashing is heavy, almost dispositive evidence in favor of the latter

What's more offensive here: 'served it well' or 'experts say'?
China’s zero Covid policy has served it well. But it isn’t sustainable and the country needs to chart a careful exit, experts say. Getting immunity levels up, especially among the elderly is critical. statnews.com/2022/11/30/zero…

The only remaining one is 'expert.' which is why so many perverse meanings have been loaded onto it.
