Meg Spohn, a doctoral candidate at the University of Denver, and a department chair at private, for profit DeVry University, maintains Megablog, where she comments on various things that interest her. DeVry apparently saw something that it objected to in one of her postings and, since Colorado is an employment-at-will state, summarily fired her. Staff escorted her out of the building. Spohn says she still does not know what in her post distressed the university administration, but here is her description of the event. Business Week's Stephen Baker blogged about the firing here.
