Regarding “Swastikas, graffiti found at Ohio University” (columbusjewishnews.com, July 3), I wonder what a “free speech zone” means. Is it free speech for ideas I agree with, or is it a true free speech zone?

Do you remember the Nazi march in Skokie, Ill., in 1978? I do, and I recall that I supported the march even if I wish that all Nazis were dead (although I personally will not start killing them unless they start it first). To be serious, I don’t mind when these Nazis talk or draw in a free speech zone as long as they don’t follow up with action.

I also have controversial ideas that most Americans despise, e.g., I am a vegetarian and I am not religious. I don’t think I would appreciate if I were attacked for them.
