Anyone else feel a cold, clammy hand on their shoulder?
From the Springfield (Mo.) News-Leader:
One month after leaving office, former U.S. attorney general John Ashcroft has a new job: He'll be a part-time professor at a Christian university run by television evangelist Pat Robertson.
Ashcroft, 62, will begin teaching a one-week course on "leadership in times of crisis" on April 4 at Regent University in Virginia Beach.

Jay Sekulow, a Regent University trustee, said the former attorney general will teach a two-week version of the same course during the college's summer, fall and spring semesters beginning this year.

Ashcroft also will lecture on national security law and meet informally with students, Sekulow said.

Ashcroft will be a "distinguished fellow" of the new Law and Justice Institute, which plans to do research to support lawsuits aimed at upholding Christian values.

"This is a great benefit (for) the school," Sekulow said. "What better way to teach national security law than to have the man who handled 9/11?"
