Is Citing History a Threat?
January 20, 2014
By Scott Jaschik

On Friday, many at Colorado State University-Pueblo nervously awaited 
word from administrators on exactly how many jobs would be eliminated 
there. Officials had warned that the number could be as high as 50 -- a 
prospect that angered many students and professors at the university who 
dispute administrators' assertions that the institution faces a deficit 
requiring layoffs.

Timothy McGettigan, a professor of sociology, sent out an email to 
students and faculty members in which he urged them to fight the cuts. 
His subject line was "Children of Ludlow," referring to a 1914 massacre 
of striking coal miners in southern Colorado. McGettigan compared the 
way the central system administration was treating Pueblo to the bloody 
way coal mine owners treated their workers 100 years ago. He went on to 
say that, just like a century ago, those without power were being 
mistreated.
