Words Do Matter

Another entry in the careful what you say and when you say it as UCF puts an instructor on leave for what he characterized as a joke in class.  It follows other similar events as we become quite sensitive to what are seen as inappropriate comments, especially as it relates to violence.  More than a few of these have been in social media during the past year.  The end of the day takeaway:  these folks are losing jobs and if they get the position back, their reputations have been tarnished and the costs (often literal in legal fees) are high.
