Univ. of Florida Suspends Biz School Prof After Video Captures Him Teaching While Impaired and Shooting Bird to Class

Sad story in today's Chronicle of Higher Education:  Baked Professor Is Burned on Blog, Canned by College:

Until earlier today, viewers of BoingBoing, a popular blog, could watch a video clip of a giggling business-school lecturer acting goofy in class, under the heading “apparently-baked biz school prof who was soon fired.” The professor, Howard J. Hall, a lecturer at the University of Florida’s Warrington College of Business, appears in a video still on the site brandishing his middle finger. The video was available through links to the college’s Web site. Next to the photo, the poster wrote: “It appears from the content of this video that this University of Florida professor—whom everyone has to take in the business school—got REALLY REALLY REALLY HIGH before one of his classes.”

You Tube has the video here:
