Khatami at Harvard

In case you haven't heard the news, former Iranian president Mohammad Khatami is speaking at Harvard's JFK School of Government later this afternoon. If you want to watch the event live, it should be available on the school's website starting at 4:00pm Eastern Time. Also worth checking out is Alan Dershowitz's op-ed in the Boston Globe regarding universities and tolerance specifically with regards to inviting someone like Khatami to speak. Does the fact that a guest will offend people suggest that he or she should not be invited to speak or do universities have a responsibility to promote debate whatever the cost?
