Never Underestimate The Dark Side

Update 12/24/05. What an idiot. By college you would think he would have learned to take his punishment and not come up with some bogus story like the dog ate my homework.

Next thing you know acupuncture books will be on the list along with Confucius.
Agents' visit chills UMass Dartmouth senior: 12/ 17/ 2005: "The eavesdropping was apparently done without warrants.
The Little Red Book, is a collection of quotations and speech excerpts from Chinese leader Mao Tse-Tung.
In the 1950s and '60s, during the Cultural Revolution in China, it was required reading. Although there are abridged versions available, the student asked for a version translated directly from the original book.
The student told Professor Pontbriand and Dr. Williams that the Homeland Security agents told him the book was on a 'watch list.' They brought the book with them, but did not leave it with the student, the professors said.
Dr. Williams said in his research, he regularly contacts people in Afghanistan, Chechnya and other Muslim hot spots, and suspects that some of his calls are monitored.
'My instinct is that there is a lot more monitoring than we think,' he said.
Dr. Williams said he had been planning to offer a course on terrorism next semester, but is reconsidering, because it might put his students at risk. "
Cool, just stop offering classes and opportunities because they might offend. That's not censorship. Not really.
