Last March I wrote about the mind-boggling case of an Indiana university disciplining a janitor for reading a history book about Notre Dame students fighting against the KKK.
The university said that reading anything about the KKK -- even about a battle against the Klan -- was insensitive to black coworkers and constituted racial harassment.
The university chancellor has, at long last, written a letter to the janitor apologizing.
Frankly, it strikes me as too little, too late. It's quite troubling that there was no one at the university willing to stop the madness and dismiss this incident months ago.
