Students, stars, media movers, academics: They are always saying they want debate, but they don't. They want their vision imposed. They want to win. And if the win doesn't come quickly, they'll rush the stage, curse you out, attempt to intimidate....
And all this continues to come more from the left than the right in America.

Letter falsely tells mother of son's death
A mother in Duluth, Minn., mailed a letter to her soldier son in Baghdad and although he was alive and doing fine, the letter came back stamped "DECEASED."
The Duluth News-Tribune reported on last week's shocking delivery, saying Joan Najbar, the mother who first mailed the letter, believes it was a prank and not a blunder by the military.
Fortunately, Najbar had kept in contact with her son via e-mail. She told the News-Tribune that if she hadn't, the letter may have been much more upsetting.
... the letter, which had a Duluth postmark upon its return, seems to not have even entered into the military mail system.
...Najbar, who is a prominent anti-war activist, said she thinks it might have been someone who disagrees with her views.
