Don't Skip Class

We've heard from several tipsters at this point that a certain M and A / Corporations professor who has made headlines before canceled class after he discovered, having lectured for about 8 minutes, that a bunch of people were skipping. The Professor in question was non-plussed.

Details forthcoming.

Details (3.48 PM): 

FFJ: To be fair, he later sent an e-mail to class admitting his theatrics were excessive
On second, and cooler, thought, it's probably unfair to refuse to finish the Time-Paramount assignment because I think it is importnt. At least one of the missing "on call" designees was inadvertently and legitimately delayed, and to hold the entire class responsible for the default of one or two members seems excessive. At the same time, students not taking on-call responsibilities seriously seems to be an increasing problem. If you are on-call and know you will not be able to attend class for any legitimate reason (illness, call-back, etc.), sending me an e-mail to that effect will save us all a lot of grief.
good to know.
