At yesterday's meeting we talked about using satire for anti-war purposes. I'm not sure that's possible when a Supreme Court Justice (Scalia) can ban the media from a ceremony where he is to receive a free speech award.

He also said this in a speech last night:

The Constitution just sets minimums. Most of the rights that you enjoy go way beyond what the Constitution requires.
