Know your rights–all 3 of them!

Number 3: You have the right to free speech. As long as you’re not dumb enough to actually try it!

Joe Strummer sang this, with The Clash, in the 1980s, and I’m unhappy to say that it’s still true. Free speech rankles too many sensitive souls, whether in books, in the media, or even just from a street corner.

But keep pushing those buttons, all you poets, composers, authors and artists.

PS: No Proust today. After driving 1400 miles in two days, I’m in no mood to wade through his ultra-dense prose.
