Campus Protests

Most college protests are lame. Of course, most of the protesters are lefties, so lameness is to be expected, but that's a different story.

This protest is lame, too, although the subject matter is deadly serious. You've got to love the stifling of free speech in this case because it might offend somebody. And apparently it did offend somebody--I'll give the students credit for getting under the skin of their Marxist professors and administrators.

The Berlin Wall came down 20 years ago. Let's not forget that the Wall was there to keep people in, not out; let's not forget the guard towers, the concertina wire, the drab concrete.

And then there are the gulags.
