Right on Campus
After defeating CBS News in the 60 Minutes/Fake memo scandal, Rush Limbaugh is now calling upon academia to be the next front in America's ideology wars.

BRIAN C. ANDERSON wrote an article in City Journal (see http://www.opinionjournal.com/extra/?id=110006149)

He expresses the old theory that conservatives are the oppressed victims on college campuses, and the true rebels against conformity. Such a theory, though, ignores the violations of academic freedom that continue to occur against liberal ideas, including a growing movement to ban any speakers who have expressed pro-choice views from Catholic colleges.

For more on academic freedom, see Illinois Academe, which I edit for the Illinois AAUP: http://ilaaup.org/news00.html

If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain.
