Again, what is it about free speech don't you understand?

The New Yorker cover. Ludacris's song. Michael Savage's ignorant statement. It's all free speech. Free to say something stupid. Free to offend people. Free speech is not about being inoffensive and profound all the time. If you don't like to live in a country that upholds the right of free speech move to China.

Okay, I'm commenting too much, but just one more.

Freedom of speech is so fragile because most people don't really believe in it, even in the good ol' US of A. Oh they say they believe in it till their ox is gored and then it's hang the bastid!

That's why it'll never really be secure. Every generation has to fight the fight all over again.
