"'The students at the University of California at Berkeley represent a diverse array of students from all walks of life,' begins the student petition. Somehow you just know that before the end, the document would demand that the administration muzzle someone -- for the sake of diversity. The spirit of far-left censors trumps exposure to novel ideas. Hence the new student group: Stop Bill Maher from Speaking at UC Berkeley’s December Graduation, which almost prevailed. 'It is the responsibility of the University of California to protect all students and uphold a standard of civility,' quoth the petition, which has gathered close to 4,000 signatures. Protect students from a comedian? O brave new university that has such delicate flowers in it." (10/30/14)
