    I just saw your link to Jerry Coyne’s piece about Tony Turner, suspended for his satirical song about the Canadian Prime Minister. A quick note to point out that Turner is not an academic, and so does not have tenure, as your note implies. Moreover, Turner works for the Canadian government, and even in the U.S. the rights of government employees to criticize the government are severely limited, and I suspect that the same it possible in Canada. Not pretty, but a cautionary tale?
