The Volokh Conspiracy
Disturbing news about the thought police at Oklahoma State. While the liberals are all up in arms about the Patriot Act, which could actually help safeguard this country, they're also getting stupid, and frankly dangerous, rules like this passed to control what people have a right to say. You've got to love it. This is a slippery slope, and severely more Orwellian than looking for people who actually pose a threat.

Also, as far as the tasteless jerks who feel the need to say truly offensive things based on "race, color, ethnicity or national origin," (criticizing the French should be excluded, by the way) I'd much rather they said these things in public, where we can keep an eye on them, than outlawing them and forcing them to go underground.
