A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

There's a right way, and a wrong way...: to handle the issue of free speech on campus. The wrong way is how Cal Poly has done it with regard to Steve Hinkle who is getting the book thrown at him for posting a non-offensive flier.

The right way is illustrated by UC San Diego, which determined that a far more offensive publication was protected by the First Amendment.


A UC San Diego investigation into the distribution and publication of a magazine ridiculing Islam has concluded that the students involved will not be disciplined because the content is protected speech.

While images and articles in the magazine portraying Muslim women as sexual objects were highly offensive, university officials said, they were satirical and therefore not defamatory.

"The campus understands that there are going to be publications that contain very offensive and objectionable content," said Nick Aguilar, UCSD's director of student policies and judicial affairs. "But the First Amendment is of higher order of importance for us in making sure we do not discourage or interfere with the rights of our students."


Thanks for the small dose of sanity.
