I enjoyed reading President Eisgruber’s “A Case Study in Civil Discourse” in the April issue of PAW. Having been on the fence regarding the controversy over free speech at Princeton and anywhere, for that matter, it now occurs to me that the simple and reasonable solution is to let both sides speak when ultra-sensitive matters are broached. As we do for our State of the Union address each year. Simple, equitable, and nonconfrontational.
