The Republican Party's attempt to intimidate Professor Cronon

The New York Times has appropriately characterized the Republican Party's open records request on University of Wisconsin Madison history professor William Cronon's emails a "political fishing expedition" designed to intimidate critics.

It is vengeful, a misguided attempt to silence critics of the Walker administration.

It is ironic that the party whose leaders broke the state's open records laws to strip public employees of their right to be represented by a union would now employ that very law to try to silence its critics.

The editorial is linked here.

Cronon's own brilliant response is linked here. It is very long, but well worth the read.

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if
it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it
with someone!
