Apparently, my post on Tom Delay has been visited by the US Senate Sergent at Arms office! Although Delay is in the House… Hmm. Maybe I’ll continue to live in St. Louis for a little while longer. Hope they found what they were looking for – wonder if they are going to go all Patriot Act on my sad, sorry, hominid behind? They wouldn’t throw a 3.5-2.8 my old hominid in the slammer would they (no, but since A. afarensis comes from Ethiopia we are going to render you for -er – questioning!)
In case they come back:
The first ten amendments comprise the Bill of Rights. The first amendment protects religious freedom by prohibiting the establishment of an official or exclusive church or sect. Free speech and free press are protected, although they can be limited for reasons of defamation, obscenity, and certain forms of state censorship, especially during wartime. The freedom of assembly and petition also covers marching, picketing and pamphleteering.
Amendment I (1791)
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
