NASHVILLE, TN—Vanderbilt University theater major Sandy Heckscher said Monday that she has been stretched to the limits of her endurance by the "blunt upbraidings and bitter scoffs" of drama professor and Shakespeare scholar Ian Treatt. "Who breathes but'd rather be a simple whore, than lurk within this country of insult?" said Heckscher, who thinks Treatt is a "bad grader." "O monstrous beast! How like a swine he lies! Grim death—that foul and loathsome moniker!" Treatt responded to the charges by saying only that he found himself amazed that theater majors "are too simple/To offer war where they should kneel for peace."
