Nat Hentoff on political correctness....

A nice op-ed by Nat Hentoff on political correctness as Harvard....he quotes an essay by a high-schooler.
Asking "how free is our speech anymore," Drew Toop of Davis High School in Yakima, astutely noted: "Most people believe that we can say what we think and as we feel without fear. But there is a force out there that is hazardous to all of this freedom. Instead of being some remote dictatorship or Gestapo-like government organism, as it often has been in the lands of tyranny and oppression, our freedom is quashed by political correctness."
