Cancel Michael Moore

According to the Chicago Tribune, last fall Cal State San Marcos revoked an invitation to Michael Moore to speak on campus saying that they were prohibited from spending state money on political activity.

Moore, the understanding and mature individual that he is, has announced that he has established The Michael Moore Freedom of Speech Scholarship for Cal State San Marcos students "who have done the most to fight for issues of student rights by standing up to the administration." Moore will award two $2,500 annual scholarships.

I'm a little bothered by Moore's vindictiveness and the miserly award he's offering but hey, he's spending money on education. Maybe a lot more universities should cancel his appearances.
