A few months ago, we published a story about a theater professor at the University of Wisconsin-Stout, who was threatened with criminal charges to posting a Firefly quote on his office door.  The problem wasn’t the poster or even the quote, however; the problem was that people fuckin’ fail at reading comprehension and jump to conclusions before considering the evidence.

We now have some follow up information about this completely ridiculous situation. This information shall be presented in a video format!

In a nutshell: the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) took Professor Miller’s case with an interest in defending free speech… and because everybody who knows anything knows that Firefly is goddamn awesome. Neil Gaiman shows up as well! Check out the video to see exactly how the sci-fi nerd community raised to the occasion and got this shit sorted the fuck out. NERD POWER!
