Where Were You When the Lights Went Out? is a 1968 romantic comedy starring Doris Day, who plays an actress caught in the great Northeastern blackout of November 1965 (like many a Day film, she accidentally ends up in bed with the wrong guy, yet manages to keep her virtue intact).

Once upon a time, universities were the ultimate forum of ideas. Today however, college campuses have become the most intolerant places for diverse and even conventional viewpoints. The First Amendment, intellectual freedom, and the very idea of free speech are under attack with threats, bans, and even violence. A growing number of Americans don’t even believe you have the right to speak your mind if what you have to say might offend someone, somewhere. They advocate for campuses to be “safe spaces” in which open debate and discussions are not allowed. This disturbing movement has now been extending beyond colleges and into the wider world.
