Charles Koch, CEO of Wichita-based Koch Industries, unexpectedly shared a Wall Street Journal byline with former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to deliver a message to college administrators and faculty: “Stop stifling free speech and coddling intolerance for controversial ideas, which are crucial to a college education – as well as to human happiness and progress.” They also expressed concern that “colleges are increasingly shielding students from any idea that could cause discomfort or offense” and said: “The continued march of justice and progress depends on free speech, open minds and rational discourse.” – Rhonda Holman
