Via AmericaBlog Gay:

I wonder how Nebraska would handle a racist football coach?

Which is fine, so long as he keeps it to himself.  But I'd like to know how someone can be hired, or kept on, as a teacher once a school, especially a state school spending taxpayer money, finds out that the teacher is a very public bigot.  And lest anyone raise the free speech canard, would the University of Nebraska really keep an avowed racist activist as a teacher, or a coach?  How about a Klansman or a neo-Nazi?  Funny how complicated free speech gets when you take the gay out of the equation.

An Investigation of the Mind

We really must verify for ourselves that whatever thought comes into our mind has never acquired any true existence: thoughts are never born, they never dwell as something truly existing, and they have nowhere to go when they disappear from our mind.
