Gary,

You're very welcome. I guess our free speech laws protect any speech that doesn't directly incite to violence, but that doesn't preclude condemnation of the contents of that speech.

You and Reut are very brave. It's amazing that none of the other faculty speak up against this. Maybe there's something I'm not getting????

Do you think the majority of Americans are aware of Malik Ali-type diatribes on university campuses?

Maybe I'm naive, but don't you think if many people knew, there would be outrage and an outcry expressed by many, many people? Maybe enough voices to drive his sort back to their back rooms with their, as you say, poison?

What about the parents of the students at UCI? Do you think they know? How many would knowingly send their child to study at UCI to be exposed to this ugliness? If not, what do you think? How would it be possible to publicize this? Any ideas? It's so strange that mainstream magazines and newspapers wouldn't pick up on it.

By the way, I had a look at your blog. Please keep up the good work!
