A bill on the way to Gov.Bob McDonnell’s desk raises some interesting questions concerning campus discrimination, the “right of the people peaceably to assemble,” and the necessity of colleges to pay for such assembly. McDonnell has yet to commit to signing it. I imagine if he does, court challenges lurk in the future. Still, it’s a debate that should continue on and off campus.
