Hopefully you don’t need us to give you more reasons to watch FIRE’s newest video about the shocking censorship last year at Sam Houston State University, where a professor used a box cutter to remove profanity from a student-sponsored “free speech wall.” In case you do, though, FIRE’s Greg Lukianoff and Robert Shibley have a pair of columns for you. Writing for College Insurrection and The Daily Caller, respectively, Greg and Robert make the case for defending expression on campus even when many might see it as having little or no value. As Greg writes, “I am in full agreement with the Supreme Court in the famous case of Cohen v. California that ‘one man’s vulgarity is another man’s lyric.’”

X’s suit is a classic example of a SLAPP — a strategic lawsuit against public participation.
