While activist David Horowitz was on stage last week at the Tivoli arguing his case involving the isolation of conservative viewpoints on college campuses, a brochure available to the audience pretty much made the point for him.

The publication listed the "fall highlights" of "lectures, events and programs" sponsored by student groups. Although several "debate style" lectures were scheduled to offer opposing viewpoints, Horowitz was the only identifiable conservative on the list who would be appearing alone. Meanwhile, other solo guests included the mother of Matthew Shepard speaking on hate crimes, the mother of Amadou Diallo speaking on police brutality, a co-founder of the United Farm Workers, and an expert on the history of the Chicano movement, just to name a few. Good speakers, to be sure, but not exactly politically diverse.
