Submission + - End of the tenure process? (mediaelites.com)

duckintheface writes: A professor at the University of Alabama in Huntsville reportedly (http://mediaelites.com/?p=12975) killed three members of the Biology faculty when she was denied tenure. After serving for seven years as Assistant Professor at UAH, Harvard trained biologist Amy Bishop, PhD was denied tenure and then allegedly opened fire in a faculty meeting, killing three and wounding three other members of the faculty.

As tenure becomes more difficult or impossible for even very talented candidates to achieve, many will find themselves... at the age of 35-40.... tossed out on the street with nothing to show for spending their entire adult lives working at low wages. Should we be surprised if this becomes a more common end to the tenure process?
