Paulin re-invited

Ulster poet, and latterly rough-house polemicist, Tom Paulin was re-issued with the invitation that he lost a week ago to deliver the annual Morris Gray Lecture at Harvard. The issue has sent a number of academic institutions into chaos:

“The University of Vermont originally scheduled a talk by Paulin on its campus for today, but canceled it some time after the lecture at Harvard was canceled, according to a receptionist for the University of Vermont’s English department.”

Update: John Flemming disagrees with Paulin but upholds the principle of freedom of speech.
