Been listening to Rush again, Bill?  Though the oppressive reign of  
liberalism in the American academy is a favorite theme among  
reactionary blowhards, most university administrations have in fact  
adopted an extremely laissez faire attitude about faculty/staff/ 
student use of university web spaces.  To include them (not to mention  
the ACLU) with the Chinese gov't and Islamic fundamentalists is a  
piece of rhetorical misdirection worthy of El Rushbo.  As for my  
mention of the Bushies, the allusion was only to their tendency (until  
recently anyway) to kowtow to those who'd impose their own theocratic  
vision of a moral society on the rest of us.  Anyone who'd be willing  
to sully the Constitution over gay marriage to strengthen their  
political power wouldn't hesitate to gag other forms of behavior  
deemed "incorrect" by our homegrown Taliban.    (02)
