EUGENE VOLOKH reports on New York University’s extremely lame explanation for its censorship. Read this later post, too.

I just wonder when some anti-abortion, or whatever, group will recognize how easy it is to silence contrary opinions in the literary and academic worlds. When you reward behavior you get more of it. NYU is rewarding thuggery. On the other hand, they’re certainly providing the American public with an education — an education in how little all their talk about free speech and academic freedom means. To NYU, at least.

UPDATE: Perhaps NYU should consider poetry.
