sjkly: You did good, saying something. The professor quite frankly should have resigned on his own knowing he was not able to effectively teach his students anymore. The university did good, letting him go. It was time for him to move on to the next phase of his life and it was time for the students to have a professor who was there enough to teach them and was understandable. Certainly, your heart has to go out to the man...he probably enjoyed his job very much. But with an illness as crippling as Parkinson's, there is a time to FINALLY retire. I believe you did the absolute RIGHT thing. Too often, many people sit back and don't say anything because they don't want to hurt anyone's feelings...but you can't do that in situations like yours or the initial post on this thread because OTHER people will evenutally suffer from the same situation. Its for the greater good and you did good.
