Heckler's veto

More signs that irrational and violent outrage does pay.

First, a major bookseller won't stock an issue of a magazine that shows the Mohmammed cartoons.

And NYU refused to allow a student group to show the cartoons at a long planned event unless it excludes "non-NYU" guests. The event with on with speakers discussing the controversy accompanied by a set of blank easels.

Absolutely shameful.

Cheers to FIRE President Greg Lukianoff for going ahead with the program.
