Some folks don't get it...

I donno. It seems as if you can (or at least should be able to) get away with stuff that's satire. If the same thing is done with malice, it has less value. Of course, as a free speech absolutist (I agree with Abbie Hoffman who said it's our job to shout THEATER! in a crowded fire.), I don't think any speech should be censored or banned. Even Fox News.

On the other hand, some speech is more valuable than other. And good satire is often a great teaching tool. Seems like the teachers get it, the administrators do not.

Insurance Information Collect Disclosure

So, I get this notice from Oxford about how they use my personal information. Do they safeguard it? Do they only give it out if required by law?

Well, actually, they do whatever they want with it. Sell it to whoever will pay... as long as it's legal, they'll do it.
