A college student posts a pretty innocuous picture of herself in MySpace, wearing a pirate hat and referring to her as a "drunken pirate", and her University yanks her degree and she is fired from her job as a student teacher. I thought it might be a college from some non-imbibing sect, as I hear exist. But no, it seems to be a state school. And while you're at it, check out the other outrages at the FIRE site. My speech feels chilled, by gum. Just in case you are wondering, demon alcohol has never passed my lips, and I certainly would not allow a photo to be taken of me wearing pirate hat.
