One of several open invitations
This citizen journalist gets booted from a Muslim Student Association meeting which, as you can see by the nearby poster, was opened to the public. You can take issue with the videographer’s manners, but how do you boot a guy out for bringing in a flip cam when it’s supposedly an open event?  It kind of makes you wonder what they discussed when he left.
The Muslim Student Association is one of many student organizations (see below) which is supported by taxpayer dollars and fees paid by all students–and, you too, Mom and Dad.
