"Violence is Golden, It Seems"

My friend Roger German has penned a response to the recent cancellation of Bill Ayers' visit to Lincoln. Recall that University officials claimed it was threats of violence that forced the "disinvitation." What is the lesson from all of this, asks German:

There are approximately 47,808 students in the University of Nebraska system in Lincoln, Omaha, Bellevue, Creighton and Kearney.

They all learned a very important lesson this week. Violence is golden.
