Free Speech, Free Inquiry--Not at Duke

Ok--let's just get this out of the way. I despise Duke University. For many reasons. Mostly because Duke beat UVA in EVERY SINGLE MENS BASKETBALL GAME WE PLAYED while I was in college. But there are other reasons not to like Duke, and here's another.

Ah, the Academy--where speech is protected and inquiry untrammeled--as long as you agree with the prevailing narrative.

You are aware of the Duke Lacrosse case aren't you? The Duke administration and faculty threw those guys under the bus quicker than you can say "Mike Nifong for Senate".
What did you expect?

Um, yeah. Reference you to the line "other reasons to hate Duke" in the piece.

Disappointing but not surprising. However, it says more about leftist feminism than it does about Duke. I'm encouraged that Duke has such a proactive Pro-Life community - I don't recall anything like that when I attended Duke over 20 years ago.

I went to a Yes/Ten Years After concert at Cameron in 1971. Duke kids always had good pot.
