No, I appreciated it. That's why I remembered it and posted it twenty-something years on.

[That doesn't mean he wasn't piggish -and not just for this one comment. Ya kinda had to be there. Sorry if I have offended our porcine members. For penance I will abstain from bacon and other pork products for 24 12 hours.]

I'm afraid that few swine are aware of this forum(although obviously quite a few sheep are), but I'd like to speak for them, if I may be so presumptuous, and say that there was no offense taken, only curiosity arroused.

Anyway I really am curious. In what way do you remember him as piggish ladelfina?

Why is this so interesting? Um.. just a little crude, arrogant, not particularly brilliant yet egotistical, leched/latched onto the cutest females (he was 60-ish). He cursed like a sailor and I think he just liked shocking the sensibilities of the tender teens. Most were terrified of him as he liked to stomp around and rip people's work off the walls. I was a few years older than most of the students so I just thought it was all quite amusing. If you had to think of an actor to play him you might cross Rod Steiger with Bill O'Reilley.

Did you prefer the profs that promulgated the vile lie that you all would be helping people by lightening their wallets? Did the academics that acted as apologists for business give his/her student warm fuzzy feelings about the economic rape they were headed out to perpetrate on the suckers?
Here,at last, was an honest man and his reward is denigration here in 2008. You should all him and both apologize and thank him for his candor.

It is to be hoped more of these academic pigs could be found to the point where there students could no longer look at their own faces in the mirror each morning when they got ready for work.
This is too funny, what does 'economics rape' mean? I don't think it exists...

Thanks, I have your man much more clearly in mind now.
I probably would have employed the the street term for the most distal end of the alimentary canal to describe him or possible the obscenity that begins with "p" and is a euphemism for the male generative member.

If I might impose for one last enlightenment, what was the subject of the class?
