I see that Ian Tuttle has an article in the dead-tree magazine on the University of Chicago’s recent “small blow for learning” — that is, the recent letter to incoming freshmen from John Ellison, dean of students, promising and defending true freedom of speech and thought. Alas, Inside Higher Ed reports that 150 faculty members there have written their own open letter to freshmen, pushing back. But George Leef also has, as it turns out, an article already defending the Ellison letter from its critics. So when it comes to speech there’s plenty to talk about.
