Just a quick post – have a lot of thoughts bumping around in my head right now, but no cohesive order to them yet. However, I found an interesting link on lotusinthemud I thought was worth pointing out. Apparently, a Quaker teacher was fired for changing her loyalty oath to reflect her nonviolent spiritual views.

  1. They fired her?
    Well, I gues they did!
    How violent!

  2. From what I’ve read the loyalty oath for any and all public jobs in California, incuding working for a school in the state university system, goes back to the 1950s and the fear of the “red menace”. It is a little discussed and arcane policy that has managed to persist for over 50 years. The last I heard the math instructor in the news article had been rehired.
