Too Mentally Unstable To Practice Medicine

But not too unstable to teach college students, apparently.

It’s not that I don’t have sympathy for people who suffer from mental illness. Really, I do. But one of the reasons Clinkingbeard’s medical credentials were revoked is that she was resistant to treatment. I don’t think it takes a particularly vivid imagination to see how this story could have had a very different and far more tragic outcome. What if Clinkingbeard had taken the gun into her classroom? What if she’d used it? It wouldn’t have been the first time a college professor snapped with fatal consequences.
