Dismay at Irving's trial and sentencing

[T]he author and academic Deborah Lipstadt, who Irving unsuccessfully sued for libel in the UK in 2000 over claims that he was a Holocaust denier, said she was dismayed.

"I am not happy when censorship wins, and I don't believe in winning battles via censorship... The way of fighting Holocaust deniers is with history and with truth," she told the BBC News website.

I have to agree with Lipstadt, as much fun as it is to see Irving get his comeuppance--censorship is not the way to go.

Thanks to Rachel.
