    There would have been a time when this would not have been taken seriously.

    "Politically Correct" is a sham anyway. If it is PC, then I'm moving further away rather than getting closer... and I'm not moving!

    It's in poor taste, and might be hurtful to the families of folks who have lost family members to Islamic extremists.

    I don't understand how "political correctness" plays into this.

    It is in poor taste, I agree. However I am not sure any families of victims of Islamic terrorist would have even heard of this if the media had not made an issue out of it. There would have been a time when nobody would have thought anything about something like this but, thanks to recent events, that has changed. The reason I ask about political correctness is because I wonder if the change is simply due to recent events (etc).

    I doubt it has anything to do with recent events or political correctness. If you notice they were employees of the school, and as such are required to follow certain codes of conduct. They agreed to abide by those standards when accepting employment. Besides they still receive free room and bord even though they are no longer RA's.

    An infringement of the right of free expression of the expresser, based on a supposed greater right of not being offended of any potential expressee.

    That is correct.

    The one infringed upon is the first one to yell "Foul"!

    What they did was offensive and mocked Americans that have been terrorized . . . when did dead Americans become something to be made fun of?
