02/03/2006: In re Cindy Sheehan's arrest....
it just came to my mind that in the case of Cohen v. California, 403 U.S. 15 (1971), the Supreme Court held that arresting an individual for wearing a jacket reading "Fuck the Draft" in a courthouse violated the First Amendment.
And the best part of that: the fact that Cohen didn't immediately spring to my mind upon learning of Sheehan's arrest may mean that I'm slowly recovering from the brainwashing I was given in law school.
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!!!
