TX Tech Prof “Consoles” Distraught Students

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

After reading a WSJ article describing haw colleges and Professors nationwide were helping students cope with the upsetting results of the Presidential election,


Texas Tech Energy Commerce Department Professor Terry McInturff decided he too must do his part to help his own student snowflakes.


So, Professor McInturff wrote down his consoling thoughts, and left a copy of his thoughts along with a copy of the WSJ article he had read on each student’s desk. This is what he wrote:

After reading the article and reflecting on my often repeated statement to you that “I don’t care how you FEEL, I care what you THINK,” it occurred to me that perhaps I have been a bit too harsh. Therefore, in the spirit of dealing with the wounds of those feeling grief and unbearable angst over the election, Kim’s tragic Paris robbery, the heart wrenching Brangelina break-up or other similar tragedy, I would like to do my part. While I can’t offer “arts and crafts” or a “therapy dog,” the Energy Commerce Department has arranged for free hugs from our therapy boa constrictor. Please go to room 139 to schedule a session should you feel the need.

Have a great day. It’s great to be a Red Raider!

Apparently there have been no takers for the (fictitious) therapy boa. And Professor McInturff’s students actually had the intelligence to realize that he was joking. Further, they actually laughed, enjoying the joke instead of being offended. I expect that if a professor back east or on the west coast did something like this, he’d end up fired. But not in TX. It seems those TX kids are tougher than their coastal counterparts. Perhaps they get that way because of men like Professor McInturff. I wonder, can we clone him?
