Over at PJ Media, Steve, Scott, and Bill ruminate on the controversy triggered by a theater professor at UW-Stout when he hung a Firefly poster by his office door. (I’ve lived in Menomonie — the little college town where the kerfuffle took place — for the last 35 years; I mention this for the benefit of readers who wonder why I love posting about it so much.)
“There are people you do not want to upset in the world. And big groups of people you don’t want to upset would obviously include the politically disenfranchised who feel they have nothing to lose. And those that feel that the time has come for revolution. Then out on the edges beyond any of those are science fiction and fantasy fans whose favorite show has been cancelled in an untimely way.” –Neil Gaiman
Back in October, I wrote about the controversy that a University of Wisconsin professor unintentionally ignited when he hung a “Firefly” poster outside the door to his office. Now the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education has produced a new video recapping their victory in the kerfuffle that ensued when university officials got their knickers in a twist over the professor’s poster.
