Tales From Academia

From a reader:

Mr. Goldberg,

I was sitting in my speech course at Penn State today, and was very startled to discover that you have apparently had a sex change.

One of my fellow students repeatedly identified you with feminine pronoun “she” today, during his speech against censorship.

If you’re going to go and do something like that, the very least you could do is let your loyal readers and subscribers know that something’s up.

But anyway, thanks for providing my well-intentioned, albeit ignorant classmate with such excellent material to rail against and misquote.

P.S.This very insightful person also told us that, “The Bill of Rights is too old to be taken seriously and needs to be rewritten, because change is good for America.”

Come to think of it, he seemed to think that YouTube’s crackdown on graphic violence is somehow prohibited by the first amendment. Apparently YouTube is now the fourth branch of government.

How brilliant!  And what an excellent researcher!
