By Martin Morse Wooster: You should see a YouTube video called “Don’t Mess With Firefly! How Sci Fi Fans Made a Campus Safe for Free Speech!” by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education or FIRE, posted at thefire.org.
Short version: University of Wisconsin (Stout) theatre professor puts a poster on his door quoting “Firefly” that the campus police chief tears down because of “sensitivity” issues: FIRE (a pro-free speech organization) gets involved, contacts “Firefly” fans; Neil Gaiman tweeted about it and his 1.6 million (!!!) followers began beseiging the university with email; school backs down; free speech wins.
Gaiman’s extensively interviewed in the video.
