College Campus Idoicy

This bit out lunacy brought to us by Ohio State University...

Scott Savage, a reference librarian for the university, suggested four best-selling conservative books for freshman reading in his role as a member of OSU Mansfield's First Year Reading Experience Committee. The four books he suggested were:

The Marketing of Evil by David Kupelian,
The Professors
by David Horowitz,
Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis
by Bat Ye'or,
and It Takes a Family by U.S. Senator Rick Santorum.

Savage made the recommendations after other committee members had suggested a series of books with a left-wing perspective, by authors such as Jimmy Carter and Maria Shriver.

The school's response for his suggestion: Savage was put under "investigation" by OSU's Office of Human Resources after three professors filed a complaint of discrimination and sexual harassment against him, saying that the book suggestions made them feel "unsafe." Absolutely unbelievable.
