Reading articles like this always raises my hackles - Massachusetts Law Professor Calls Care Packages for U.S. Troops 'Shameful' In my military career, I've been extremely fortunate not to come in harm's way (though I've been close a few times). However, I have a great love in my heart for any man or woman who does so, our American servicemen and women, both uniformed and civilian. The US military is the only profession, as part of their oath, that take on that singular responsibility to lay down one's life if situations dictate they must. They do it voluntarily. However, I feel that police officers and fire fighters fall into the same category. So I take it personally when someone, in this case Massachussetts law professor Michael Avery, exercises his free speech rights to call an extension of good will and support "shameful." The influence this person has as a professor has the potential to poison students and faculty alike. I'm glad that most haven't sided with him, and I agree with Suffolk University's stance that opinions like that ought to be open and discussed in the proper venue. E-mailing his professional opinion doesn't seem the right thing to do. It'd be like me stating something similar, and thus, seemingly attributing that as the Air Force's opinion on the subject. There are other platforms, like Facebook or other social outlets to vent this, which I'm totally for, as it becomes a personal opinion vs professional. ~ Shane
