Free speech? Not in Fayetteville

Posted By on Fri, Feb 8, 2008 at 8:29 AM

Richard Drake, on his Street Jazz blog, reports that the Fayetteville Library, of all places, shooed away someone trying to gather election petition signatures on the sidewalk. The Iconoclast chimes in on the outrage, noting the library's recent secret background checks of employees and its intention to compete with independent bookstores with on-line sales. Shame on them.
