A much-needed blow against PC ridiculousness. (Thank you!)

Thank you, John Ellison (Dean of Students at the University of Chicago), for this letter to incoming students. I was wondering when someone from Academia would step up and decry the idiotic, trendy concept of "safe spaces" and "trigger warnings" on campus.

“Our commitment to academic freedom means that we do not support so-called trigger warnings, we do not cancel invited speakers because their topics might prove controversial, and we do not condone the creation of intellectual ‘safe spaces’ where individuals can retreat from ideas and perspectives at odds with their own." --- John Ellison
