One of the things to love about the internet is nearly immediate availability of explanation, confirmation or refutation.

Used to be you had to trust that your lecturer was learned enough to know the truth, honest enough to express it without bias and not generally be a lazy hack pushcarting stolen and unusable drivel in a sinecure he had bought corruptly with some part of his soul or purse.

Now, you can not only look up the facts, sort through the controversies and make up your own mind; but also, research your school, the department and its general reputation within the academic community.

Good stuff!

Hi Everyone,

I can't remember what I posted on here about this issue, but I did end up writing a lengthy letter to one of the two author's of the text--of whom was a professor at our school.  My professor for my class said it had to go through appropriate "channels"...and it is 2 weeks into new term and I have yet to hear from anyone.  So, probably it will go nowhere, but it will then fall on them and not me.

Peace!  Sarah

Good luck.

I've spent the past few years playing "canary in the coal mine" while I get my bachelor's and MBA.

I know full well what you're going through.
