Free Speech, Draw the Line

Anyone half-awake to American life in recent years knows there is a large effort under way to banish that bedrock principle of protection for words that offend. Free-speech traditions are under pressure on campuses, in high schools, in the media, in the streets and in sports.
That the court’s liberal justices— Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan —joined the majority suggests these four see what is going on, that letting the ability to speak one’s mind slip away under this silencing weight will damage all Americans.

Hard to believe that anyone things the government should be involved in this stuff.

Missed this one from 3 years ago ...

There are many, ahem, bombshells in this one.  I remember being there in 2006 and the guys I worked with said, "nope, we were looking for nukes and their precursors, didn't find any."
