Shouting Fire

Silly me, and here I thought "unlawful free speech" meant doing something dangerous, like shouting "Fire!" in a packed theater when nothing was burning.  As far as I'm concerned, if you can't make your mind known in front of the U.S. Supreme Court (and it's been way too long since you could), a lot more than a theater is burning.  Unfortunately, the powers that be seem to be bound and determined to make sure none of us make it out of this decade with our lives and liberties intact.
Sorry.  I'm not a political creature by nature, but sometimes it's impossible to not comment.  At least I can keep this particular rant short.  Returning you now to your regularly scheduled apolitical blog.
