Letter to WSJ Another part of the First Amendment

Chicago Tuesday AM 11 May 2010

Editors, The Wall Street Journal


The Wall Street Journal's L. Gordon Crovitz closes his fine Monday, May 10 OpEd “Tech-Savvy Justices Protect Free Speech” with the crucial, but rarely so clearly stated, observation that “Speech rights are the same whether exercised through pamphlets or the Web, and whether by individuals or through associations of individuals, incorporated or not."

Everyone knows the First Amendment's “Congress shall make no law... abridging the freedom of speech....” How many go on 5 more words to “the right of the people peaceably to assemble...?” And what is a corporation but people peaceably assembling?
