A true defender of academic freedom

No, I'm not talking about Ward Churchill, whom a University of Colorado committee today recommended be dismissed for research misconduct. I mean Michael Bérubé, whose speech at the AAUP annual meeting today is another thoughtful essay on the needs of universities. Another must-read. (Incidentally, someone who cannot tell the difference between Bérubé and Churchill is incompetent to comment on universities; someone who cannot tell the difference bewteen Bérubé and Horowitz is drunk on Purim.)

And now, if you'll excuse me, I'll be showering after playing some baseball with Vincent.
