This is a joke! "The Breeze" isn't a real or legitimate news organization. It's a student news rag, that's supported entirely by public tax dollars. I think it's past due that we shove that "academic freedom" up academia's lofty nose. If they want "freedom", they need to get off the public dole.

Shut up! Is that all you can complain about when the AGs office is wasting tax dollars filing stupid lawsuits against the Federal Gov't?
