In what has still been the worst of times for many, University of Chicago Law Professor Todd Henderson posted on his blog the challenge he faces making it on $250,000+ per year. What followed was what he called an "electronic lynching." He has since removed that post. Here is a less-controversial post from Professor Henderson's blog.
On HUFFINGTON POST, William Alden provides a bit of background. Henderson decided to opine on his blog about President Barack Obama's tax hike for those making more than $250,000. Tone-deaf, Henderson opined that it seems that Obama would then be treating him as if he is rich, which he is not. He explained his position in nine paragraphs.
The mob went for blood. It succeeded in shutting down and shutting up Henderson. Has he learned anything? There are many variables correlated with what individuals can and will learn from trauma. Incidentally, if this were China in Mao Zedong's reign, Professor Henderson would now be in a re-education camp.
