Miss Manners and Petty Dictators

The president of Columbia U, Lee Bollinger is now getting grief from his faculty for speaking so harshly and inhospitably to the Iranian president Ahmadinejan.

They are, of course, right. You don't invite someone to your home to insult them, to call them a cruel and petty dictator and what not.

That's why you don't invite cruel, petty dictators, terror sponsors, holocaust deniers and what-not to your home in the first place.

Although it is not a way I would treat a guest, I believe Mr. Bollinger has the right to say what he wants to say, regardless of who may find it objectionable. That is one of the advantages of living in this country.

Also, I didn't hear him say anything that, to me, was not truthful. Sometime the truth hurts.
