I’m a fairly liberal person, which naturally changes the way I view certain topics and writing, but Paul Krugman had a great column in the New York Times today.
Both sides of the political spectrum are guilty of what Krugman’s writing about, of course, but he does a good job of highlighting how this type of behavior can be detrimental to professors and others attempting to speak on controversial issues which enrage a vocal minority.
I wonder if Cronon will end up on a certain chalkboard, like another liberal professor who recently came under fire.

I would have had a longer post but I worked late, lucky me.
