April 1st’s edition contained what was hopefully an April Fool’s joke, but it isn’t funny. In the article “Professor contrasts black, gay suffering” the “professor” in question is no professor and in fact has no degrees at all. He is merely an community instructor hired to fill a gap and seems to enjoy allowing the media to misrepresent his status since it enhances what little aithority he actually has.
Perhaps the News can verify what they write beforehand, instead of giving zealots more credit than they are due. Some of us zealots actually went to school and got degrees.
