    Why is it, that in a country that was founded on individual rights and civil liberties, that the places designed for the free exchange of ideas are the same places that find the most strict adherants to censorship.

    This has become a day when hurt feelings matter more that God-given natural rights or even common sense. Not just any hurt feelings, either, only the hurt feelings of a member of a minority group. Take this example:

    Not only is this a gross violation of the First Ammendment, but that student should be offended more by his lack of education and limited vocabulary than anything the teacher said.

    Universities should be champions of free speech, but instead are becoming the beacheads for those who wish to suppress all other views.
