Marquette Dental Student suspended over blog postings
Theodore Schrubbe, a student of the Marquette University Dental School, Michigan, has been suspended from the school after making critical comments on his blog about staff at the school.
In one post, Schrubbe made comments about an unnamed professor: “I don’t even gratify him by calling him a professor. He is one who teaches, as in should teach infants and children. Professors profess knowledge and wisdom.”

My blog broke the story, and you can find frequent updates here:

Marquette is in Wisconsin, not Michigan. For other dental related posts check out my blog
Although the suspension has been overturned, the student still faces some non-trivial punishments:

This unjustified and somewhat unconstitutional witch hunt has cost Theodore Schrubbe $15,000 in attorney fees and he is the one being forced to serve community service and apologize. Where is the justice in that? Another interesting side note. The professor he commented on is not a dental professor.
