MORE ON U.C. DAVIS’S silencing of Larry Summers. Check out Greg Mankiw’s reaction. And here’s more on U.C. Irvine’s firing of Erwin Chemerinsky. Apparently they’re not big on uncongenial ideas, or administrative backbone, at the University of California. So if they do anything you don’t like, be sure to tell the Regents and they’ll fold!
UPDATE: On Greg Mankiw’s blog: “If there is any place that should be open to a wide range of views, it is a university. To bar a scholar as prominent as Larry from talking simply because you disagree with him is despicable.”
