In 1999, Dr. Mirkin published an article in an obscure academic journal likening the "moral panic" surrounding pedophilia to the outrage of previous generations over feminism and homosexuality...Last week, the Missouri Legislature voted to cut $100,000 from the university's budget, saying taxpayers did not want to finance such perversity.
Actually, I think I approve of the way both parties are acting in this conflict. Although the professor certainly should be able to profess what he believes on this issue, I don't think that the government is necessarily obligated to financially support his controversial work.
