Fascinating, indeed. And a timely icon of prevailing moods and attitude shifts.

I was intrigued by the comments on racism in this PBS Newshour interview.

And also--(though 'current', is it really "News"?)--these actions by college students on social media AND their consequences:
One student expelled after the other.

Is there more a more permissive encouragement to vent vitriol, these days, or....are these students being punished for demonstrating free speech?
