Ayers' Speech Canceled At University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Officials at UNL claim that Bill Ayers' speaking engagement has been canceled due to safety concerns.

Ayers, who founded a group in the late 1960s that claimed responsibility for bombing several government buildings, was to speak Nov. 15.

But officials said Friday the university’s threat assessment group received e-mails and phone calls over the last day or two that identified safety issues.

When asked about details of the concerns, including if they contained threats against Ayers, University spokeswoman Meg Lauerman declined to comment further.
It'll be okay, Bill; I understand that Columbia still gives a forum to terrorist sympathizers.
