Wesleyan Bans Chalkings

The New York Times has an article today about Wesleyan University, where the president recently banned chalking on sidewalks (a common practice at this arch-liberal school). President Douglas J. Bennet cited vulgar references to professors as the justification (it would be interesting to know what those references were, exactly, and whether or not they were libelous). After his announcement, leftie students, feeling that the University was demonstrating a “lack of commitment to minorities and unprintable gay chalkings,” protested with a “chalk-in.” Choice scribblings include “Free Palestine,” “Where is Asian-American Studies,” and — my personal favorite — “There Are Too Many White People.”
