Nanny-state shenanigans

Interview with Steven Barber:

Earlier this month, The Fiction Circus caught wind of the black smell of burning paper, and followed it to find that a student had been kicked out of college after writing a controversial and “dark” short story for his creative writing class.

I just finished reading An American Dream by Norman Mailer; it’s fantastic, but it’s more or less the same sort of material that got this guy kicked out of school: Murder, sex, and more booze than is rational or safe.

I’ve written stuff like this; does that make me crazy? Surely not. Fiction is explicitly false, even if very close to the truth. This is not the case here, however.

This is a case of railroading a libertarian veteran because they stir shit on campus.
