THE DEMISE OF COMEDY ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES: Caitlin Flanagan has a great new article in The Atlantic about how today’s college students want their comedy “100 percent risk-free” so that it does “not trigger or upset or mildly trouble a single student.” FIRE actually has a comedy coming out soon about this very topic called Can We Take a Joke?— check it out and like it on Facebook.

I​,​ too​,​ have a forthcoming feature article in The Atlantic that I co-authored with best selling author and social psychologist Jonathan Haidt. ​W​e take a unique perspective on free speech on campus, examining ​it through the lens of psychology. Keep an eye out for the article in the September issue of The Atlantic​. I’ll be sure to let readers know when it is posted to the website next week. ​
