MIT prof. denied tenure ends hunger strike

Apparently the wacky junior professor at MIT who was denied tenure has ended his misguided hunger strike. If he was really serious, though, he’d light himself on fire. I mean, because not getting tenure due to some perceived but completely unproven racism on the part of several independent investigative commmittees at MIT is totally a good reason to resort to the kind of extreme measures that people have generally used to protest err, dictatorial rule, political imprisonment, or violations of the Geneva Conventions.
