Brickbat: Hamming It Up


Montclair State University officials ordered Joseph Aziz not to talk about a fellow student on social media sites after he commented on a YouTube video that the woman's legs looked like a pair of bleached hams. But he mentioned the incident and the woman's name on Facebook, and the university suspended him for a semester. After media picked up the story, and the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education came to Aziz's defense, the university overturned the suspension.
