The NYTimes recently had a panel of pundits wax philosophical over China’s universities’ prickliness concerning Uighers and Tibetans.

I’m surprised that no parallel was drawn between Xinjiang University’s squelching of dissent concerning Uigher territory with Columbia University’s squelching of dissent concerning Palestine.

We have our taboos, too.
