Update on the Maryland Porn Scandal

maryland_logoIf you recall, we wrote about the Maryland Porn Scandal a few days ago. That post drew many comments, and even some copycats (without attribution). But, at the time, the issue had not come to a conclusion. Now, it may have.

After campus administrators canceled a planned showing of a pornographic movie, “Pirates II: Stagnetti’s Revenge,” in the wake of a state legislator’s threat to to cut off funds to the institution, student leaders showed excerpts of the movie amid a discussion of free speech on Monday night.

I wonder which excerpts. Hopefully tasteful ones.

While they didn’t get to screen the whole thing, can you still smell victory? Kudos to student leaders at UMD for getting one by the Man, and hopefully nothing like this has to happen at Penn State.

But, as I graduate a week from today, I figured I should give it a go myself. Rather than discuss the origins of Onward State like Evan,  I’d just like to briefly thank a few individuals who have defined my Penn State experience.
