Correct Me If I'm Wrong

Wasn't this question, here applied to academics, previously applied to the United States shortly after 9-11?

"what have we done to precipitate this"?

Not to compare the proposed legislation to the murder of 3000 people, but they are both paths I do not wish to see taken.

I recall a story from the 2000 election cycle about the Bush and Gore campaigns taking notes off of late night monologues and Saturday Night Live sketches in order to determine what characteristics were being picked up on by outsiders. Legislation like this makes me quake in my boots, but it is the only form of feedback that academia has yet to show immunity to.
