WAR/LAW: Who Shall Make No Law?

The Boston Globe yesterday (registration required) ran this exceptionally fatuous piece complaining about the treatment of anti-war celebrities:

It's been a good long while since I've had a sit-down with the US Constitution, but if my junior high school memories serve me correctly, I don't recall the Bill of Rights guaranteeing free speech only to those who espouse one particular opinion.

Um, you might try reading the first five words of the First Amendment; in fact, reading the first word alone might have spared us from reading this column . . .

It's amazing the number of people who have come to view "free speech" as speech without consequences.

Hmm. Must be the penumbra requiring me to listen to music and watch movies by celebrities I abhor.
