News from Let's Try Freedom
Bob Hayes is good enough to include The Blog from the Core on his blogroll, and me in his e-mail distribution, so I'm happy to link to his very first breaking news though it's probably superfluous since the InstaPundit has already taken notice.
FWIW, I am wondering exactly why academic freedom means a professor can say any damn thing he wants and nobody can do anything about it. (Isn't that what it amounts to the more extreme forms, at the least?) What about the academic freedom of students, to not be subjected to effluvium from a cesspool? Or the academic freedom of parents who pay for their children's education, likewise to not have their relatives subjected to effluvium from a cesspool? Or the academic freedom of taxpayers who pay to construct the classroom buildings, likewise to not have their tax money wasted on distributing effluvium from a cesspool?
Academic freedom without academic accountability leads to academic irresponsibility. Is this not abundantly clear?
P.S. See also How wide a berth?
