Subject:        PC Shakespeare

A colleague recently related to me the tale of a professor from the Univ
of Arizona who was supposedly dismissed from his position for teaching
Shakespeare and refusing to "correct" the Eurocentrism and gender bias
contained therein.

Of course, the person who told him about it had read it in an article in
the Washington Post or "something like that".

Is this an urban myth or is there any truth to the tale?
