The issue of free speech is not determined by someone's belief that the speaker is a horse's hind end. To wit, no one can shut Obama up, even though many f us would prefer him to.

My case began in September of 2006 when I was denied promotion to full professor. At the time, I had multiple teaching awards and outstanding reviews from students for my teaching. I had published more peer-reviewed articles than the vast majority of my colleagues. In fact, my department had never denied promotion to full professor to anyone with as many peer reviewed publications as I had accumulated. My...
