This article presents the author's experiences as writer in the "Yale Daily News." The author recalls that despite the uncordial reception, and the hostility that his weekly articles often aroused, there is no denying that it was not all that uncomfortable to be a conservative columnist at the Yale News, or to be a conservative at Yale. In 1974, General William Westmoreland was forced to cancel, half an hour before he was scheduled to begin, a speech before the Yale Political Union because of the menacing nature of the demonstrating crowds. The author observes that in times of perfervid liberalism, radicals have enormous moral authority. They are the uncompromising ones, the ones who follow their premises right through to their conclusions, the ones not afraid to go to jail, the ones who can never be called hypocrites or sellouts.
