Kansas Pounding Away At College Prof Tenure

Right now we take a peek at the intellectual discourse of the Western world slowly dying in the midst of worsening culture war.

College tenure seems like an extraordinary privilege to Joe Six-Pack who barely made it out of Chem 101 but it's actually a big deal in terms of public education fiercely defending free speech.
