Attack on free speech

Posted By on Sun, Dec 27, 2009 at 4:43 PM

A so-called conservative political candidate -- one of the many who don't believe in free speech with which they disagree -- stirred some noise in Illinois this week by trying to remove a sign posted by the Freedom From Religion organization.

Arkansas nutcases have been better behaved. A few in the legisalture contented themselves with a  resolution -- led by a tearful and fearful state rep. -- against the winter solstice display at our own Capitol. Average Arkansans have otherwise been content to give this protected expression a good letting alone (though every time I've driven by the Capitol someone has been carefully reading the panels.).
