Well, well, well. Max Karson, wannabe Imus, got himself national attention and a court date.
I'm acquainted with Mr. Karson from when he attended public high school in Massachusetts and even mentioned him in a column. His "journalism" was so over-the-top that even the liberals in Amherst blushed. No small feat.
The reaction in Boulder to his "journalism" isn't any different.
But getting arrested for his juvenile, self-aggrandizing comments? Based on what the press has reported (no doubt, there's more to the story), it sure seems like an inappropriate, punitive response. Wherefore Art Thou Academic Freedom?
Update: Max had his day in court, and it appears he was treated fairly by the judge and had a competent lawyer. I'm glad. But isn't it uncool to be such a First Amendment revolutionary and have your dad have to pay your bail bond?
