Every time I come across an article like this John Leo column, and I've been seeing a lot of them these days, I miss my college years a little less:

"People on the left are now starting to get caught in the anti-free-speech policies set up in the last 20 years to silence dissent. These are the speech codes and anti-bias and anti-harassment policies based on the idea that hurting anyone's feelings is a form of assault. The policies were applied selectively, almost always against conservatives and Christian groups. Now college administrators, responding to a tidal wave of patriotism, are starting to turn these policies against the left."

I've also been reading the site of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, an organization devoted to protecting the rights of free speech on campus. The section on September 11-related issues, is particularly interesting.
