So you are saying professors have to be researching in order to be called a professor? How about phd's that happen to enjoy teaching other's research?

I'm saying that using the title "professor" for someone holding a master's degree, which is what most if them have, and teaching in a non-tenure-track position at a community college without doing research is a pretty big stretch.

Could one argue that it's technically correct? I suppose, but their job isn't much different than that of most of the PhD candidates I know, and no one calls them "professor."

This guy: http://home.uchicago.edu/arsx/ was one of the most popular instructors at my school. He publishes real work, collaborates and consults with other big names, serves on the editorial board of a journal, and acts as a referee for several big named journals. He has also taught at both Princeton and William & Mary and has been doing all of this since the 70s.

But he has a MA and not a PhD so he is deemed "Senior Lecturer"--that's just the way it is.

I did have some fun with her, though. Our first speech assignment was a "how to" where we had to show people how to do some project, including specific steps to complete it. My speech was entitled "How to Get Harassed by the Police," and it included a number of helpful hints on how to irk the law without doing anything wrong. Among the hints were things like "piercings are good tools for getting harassed because the police know that people who stick needles in their faces will also use needles to do heroin." I also advised anti-social/mainstream stuff like long hair, heavy metal t-shirts, being out late at night, and so on, and I was my own example. I basically did the same thing as the kid who taught us all how to change a tire, but funny.
I believe I received a C on that particular assignment...

Quality of student and quality of "professor" often go hand in hand.

No, it was a bag of pretzels that are covered in yogurt. Very tasty, in a pseudo-healthy sort of way. Unlike, say, a bag of dirty sanchez.

My dog came from a breeder, and I couldn't be happier with him. However, I had several people criticize me for doing so. Screw them.
