Quote of the day

“People are entitled to speak their mind. If their speech is unkind or irrational or similarly improper, it should be condemned on those grounds. But neither law nor morality can demand that they restrict what they do because of the murderousness of others.”

- Eugene Volokh, on the Koran-burning controversy. Someone should read that post to Senator Lindsey Graham.

    Volokh is spot-on, of course, though I agree rather completely with Ann Barnhardt on both issues – Graham and the sanctity of the koran. (Neither are worth the bacon they’re wrapped in.)
