To the editor
In her critique of our efforts to increase transparency on campus, Kimberley A. Strassel implies that disclosure of major donor funding is something to be feared because it is "shutting down debate across the country" ( The Campus Climate Crusade, Potomac Watch, March 27). This argument is inherently flawed because without disclosure there can be no debate.
