The Onion on Free Speech.

A couple of days ago The Onion posted an article on free speech.  As one of the world’s leading news sources, I think it’s important to post an excerpt here:

“This is a historic victory for free speech, and I wouldn’t be surprised if, a hundred years from now, the hallowed walls of this court bear an inscription taken from the eloquent decision handed down today,” lead defense attorney Carl Huddleston said. “Particularly the phrase ‘That which erodes human rights serves to erode humanity, fuckface.'”

In other news, I’ll be going to Stockholm for the weekend.  One of my classes is supposed to take a trip to Skansen on Saturday, so I thought I’d go a bit early and catch some shows, namely Bear in Heaven at the Hornstull Strand Establissement on Friday.  If you happen to be in Stockholm, maybe I’ll see you there.
