QUOTE OF THE DAY. Chris Perez hoists The Torch.
Too many minor incidents—Halloween costumes, Halloween parties, or single comic strips—have become controversies on campus because certain groups of students assume that nothing they see, hear, or read should offend them. These incidents are a symptom of a campus culture which too often values utopian visions of comfort and respect over rigorous, and sometimes uncomfortable and offensive, conversation.
To be precise, "utopian visions of comfort and respect" for one set of commonplaces.
