Cowardice and Courage at Middlebury: A free-speech rebellion after administrators canceled a speech.


Students at Middlebury College gave the school's administrators a lesson this week in the difference between cowardice and courage when dealing with a controversial speaker.

Owen Austin Marsh, a junior who also voted in favor of the underground lecture, said administrators should know that "students generally, me included, were upset that the university silenced the voices of people who wanted to listen-and the people who wanted to show up and dissent."
