    The standard there isn't whether he takes views that people don't like (that's kind of the point) and in a professional school, taking a job as a practicing professional is part of that.  Getting rid of Yoo requires an indictment, essentially, according to the stance of the administration.  

    I'm not sure how I feel about that, but I think there's some merit to that idea.  After all, it's only the unpopular views that need protecting.

    And remarkably, Yoo keeps his teaching fairly conventional, or at least so I've heard from his students (I went to Boalt, but never took any classes).  For what thats worth.

    Intelligent, passionate, perceptive people will always disagree, but we should not let that disagreement, however heartfelt, lead us to become deaf to those better angels of our nature.
