Oh really?

In an April 5th speech here in New York, President Wright said, "The criticism that Dartmouth has a 'speech code' derives from the position taken by the interest group FIRE, which bases its 'red light' designation on a single letter I wrote following the Zeta Psi incident four years ago."

He seems, conveniently, to have forgotten that FIRE wrote a scathing letter to him regarding the shameful attempts to ban door-to-door delivery of campus newspapers. Maybe he forgot because his minions in the legal department wrote the milquetoast response, citing an over-riding "desire to reduce litter" in the dormitories.
