So where's this so called free speech people keep talking about?


You're right. It's been slowly eroding for years and years and years and it will continue to do so. This sort of thing with Imus and the Rutger Basketball team is just a catalyst to further the fire along. But my point is, protect what you have left. You do have 'some' freedom of speech. Wouldn't it be a shame to lose what little is left?
