  1. What deserves to happen to the student who wrote the column discussed in this story? Both, for real, and in jest.

    Whomever was responsible for that getting into print should be canned. It'd be a lesson about real-world journalism, where the same thing would happen for something like that getting into print.

    It's likely that somewhere on that campus, some borderline retarded frat guys are whining about "political correctness."

    I'm positive this is a d_b thread, but I can't find the original. Something to do with Bobby Knight being a student at CCSU.

    But I agree. This column should be tattooed in green ink on his forehead.

    (Green ink is the most permanent and the hardest to remove.)

    whatever the law will allow. the writer of the piece and the paper's editor should be immediately suspended. then let a panel consisting of the women on campus they so angered to put them on trial and determine their fate. permanent expulsion would be fine by me.

    The guy is an idiot and a jerk and a bad humorist, but I don't think he should be expelled.

    I think he should resign from the paper, but he does have the right to write that crap.

    I just wonder how many people looked at it and didn't say "Hell, no."

    If a college paper is supposed to be a precursor to real life, he needs to be taught in a hard way, as do the morons who greenlighted it, that in real life, you only get that published if you have your very own printing press or blog. No employer would let you publish a column like that. The CCSU paper should not have allowed itself to be a conduit for his freedom of expression.

    "The front page of the paper had a very important story about students losing their Social Security numbers, an issue that affects the entire campus," Rowan said. "But nobody is talking about that. They're only talking about the rape article."

    Hmmm....wonder why. ::) ::) ::)

    The upside of free speech: it's easier to spot the dangerous among us.

    "Fell on deaf ears"? As if the problem is that the readers weren't hip enough to get it?
