Stifling Dissent
The always excellent Erin O'Connor has a good piece today about the increasing incidents of student newspapers being stolen and trashed (literally). Go read the whole thing. It left me wondering just what is wrong with college kids. And, what they will do when they enter the "real world" and find out that newspapers might give voice to opinions that contradict theirs. Will they steal the daily papers from their neighbors doorsteps?

This is just another sad chapter in the rise of illiberalism in higher education. And unfortunately, administrators and professors miss these teachable moments and instead cave into their consumerist students.
