Response to progree (Reply #35)

52. "shouting fire in a crowded theater" is perhaps the most torturously overused metaphor in existence

and it's also incorrect.

Oliver Wendell Holmes made the analogy during a controversial Supreme Court case that was overturned more than 40 years ago.


So let me flip it back on you, with the point I was making originally that you responded to- do you think it should be illegal for people to draw "blasphemous" cartoons?
