    "Welcome to the Ivory Tower of Babel: Confessions of a Conservative College Professor" by Mike Adams, PhD.

    Adams is a law professor at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and is a conservative commentator/columnist. He writes regularly for townhall.com, and has compiled many of his articles in this book, which, I might add, is hilarious, and sometimes appalling.

    My favorite sections deal with his campus's production of "The Vagina Monologues" and his sarcasm concerning legalized discrimination, er, affirmative action. I almost pissed myself laughing.

    On a sadder note, you might remember him from a semi-recent legal battle. Shortly after 9/11 he got an insane email from a student pushing the liberal agenda, insinuating that the US provoked the terrorists into attacking us. She cited a socialist website. He retorted, and then forwarded her email (as requested) to several others, who also happened to be Republicans. Apparently she didn't appreciate their emails indicating that they, too, thought she was an idiot. Long story short, the university breaks the law by prying into Dr. Adams' emails and those of several of his friends. He ended up on Hannity & Colmes, and brought in thefire.org, which is a group that protects 1st Amendment rights. Anyway, he recounts it in this book. The story is almost too incredible to believe...except that it's true. Crazy shit. And we should be scared.
