    A Barefoot Professor is on a crusade to make ringworm a common malady throughout the formerly civilized world.

    aniel Howell, a biology professor at Virginia's Liberty University, is on a "crusade to challenge America's cultural addiction to shoes", according to a feature in the Richmond Times-Dispatch that has hit the wires.

    Howell "likens the shoe to a cast that immobilizes an otherwise healthy foot and prevents it from functioning as nature intended," the article says.

    His argument doesn't always go over well in restaurants. So he carries a letter from the state health department that says bare feet in a restaurant is not a health code violation....

    A person can get a lot of nasty parasites walking around barefoot. In my opinion, the professor is (out in the milky way) wrong.
