Voice from the Commonwealth
Commentary, World Views and Occasional Rants from a small 'l' libertarian in Massachussetts

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Oaky. a girl here in Massachussetts cannot read from a book she brought in about Christmas because it mentions Jesus yet this student draws a graphic picture of himself shooting a cop who busted him for pot is not anything to get excited about. Can someone explain the logic....oh wait, one involves Christianity and the other involves crime.....of course there is no need for logic.

"Without question, it was intemperate and demonstrated extremely poor judgment," the court said. But by itself, "it does not appear to be anything other than pictorial ranting."

Would the judge have said the same thing if it had been a drawing of someone shooting an imagined Muslim?
