Fred on Campus Restriction on Free Speech

Fred nails the limits on Free Speech that are omnipresent on college campuses today. This is a a very good illustration of how our colleges have morphed from institutitons for free inquiry to indoctrination centers with blinders on "unfavored" speech. And as usual, comedians and satirists are in the forefront, in this case, Dave Berry.

It's funny how things change. Well, not always, but in this case, the story involves one of America's best humor writers -- Dave Barry.

There was a time when American universities were known as havens of free speech, places where controversial ideas could be expressed and discussed. Unfortunately, political correctness has crept into the halls of academia. Then it chained the doors and started duct taping the mouths of anybody who voiced unapproved opinions.
