Dear Editor,

I went to school with one of Jamaica's most celebrated intellectuals who died from the ravages to his body inflicted by the AIDS virus.

Now this man wore the prestigious accolade of professor, but what struck me like a bolt of lightning was that, with all of this education, he apparently did not know that when engaging in sexual intercourse with people whose status he was not privy he should have always used a condom.

Against this background, it is becoming increasingly obvious that this matter regarding Professor Bain's needs careful analysis.

Nonetheless, I support the dismissal of Professor Bain from his position because he was put there to protect the rights of these people who are consistently discriminated against.

So I am calling on the professional protesters to cease their activities and advise the professor thatm, now that he is no longer associated with the programme, it is the right time for him to exercise his right to freedom of speech.
