Re: “Legislators trolling Facebook? Some UA faculty fear "chilling effect" on political speech

Most faculty I know work at least sixty-hour weeks, including weekends and summers. Many work eighty-hour weeks. During the nine months that faculty members get paid, many of them are able to do very little research, because teaching and administrative work (including a lot of reports and paperwork made at the demand of the legislature) take up so much time. Yet research is required, since no university can maintain its standard of education without it, so that gets done largely in the summers when most of the faculty are not getting paid. I regularly exchange business emails (about student problems, etcetera) with other faculty at 2:00 a.m.
