-- while deplorable in any setting --
would be all the more abominable if allowed

Right...it's not "abominable", only deplorable, to kill people for what they believe to intellectually stifle dissent; it's abominable if college kids and lunatic professors can't rant.

    The killing of the freedom of speech and thought on the college campus is abominable.

    Having a Politically Correct education makes education pointless. The statement is good, its just way too late.

    The college campus is and always has been the incubation chamber of free thought and dissent. Kids get tired of listening to BS year after year -- once they get to college they are ready to strike back.
