Cleaning Up After Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Of all the sloppy and confused decisions rendered by the Supreme Court in recent years, few compare with CLS v. Martinez (2010). The decision was more than just poorly reasoned. It was also based upon willful blindness toward factual misrepresentations by the defendants in the case. Justice Ginsburg authored an opinion she knew she could […]

Putting on the Fresh Person Fifteen

Author’s note: The use of an asterisk indicates that the college or university has revised its speech code thanks to the work of my friends at the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, or FIRE.

Not sorry enough: Cops’ apology to humiliated dad falls short

The name Jesse Sansone may not register with most readers, but how about the Crayon Dad? This was the 26-year-old man who earlier this year in Kitchener, Ontario, was handcuffed, arrested, and strip-searched by the police, and whose three children were removed by Family and Children’s Services, all because his four-year-old daughter had drawn a […]

The Price is Wrong

There is an enormous free speech controversy that is pitting an outspoken North Carolina faculty member against a public university administration. For once it isn’t me (so keep on reading liberals)! This controversy involves Jammie Price, a tenured sociology professor at Appalachian State University (ASU), who previously taught at UNC-Wilmington. The current controversy also involves […]
