FOUR SONGS for FREE SPEECH

Free speech is the whole thing, the whole ball game. Free speech is life itself. - author Salman Rushdie


And Now We Celebrate Our Freedom of Speech! This post for free speech is dedicated to the Boston Phoenix's annual Muzzle Awards - listing the names of those officials and offenders who tried to silence Free Speech....

BACKGROUND (A few brief words)

Every year The Boston Phoenix (one of the best free weekly publications on the planet) publishes a critical list exposing the names of the worst offenders against free speech. These are called, "The Muzzle Awards." Definitely worth a read. Want to get ready for the next town meeting or vote? Read this list! Granted, this list is Massachusetts-centric (largely) but the spirit is what should be applauded. There are two equally important parts of free speech: Those who protect it and Those who use it. Be "guilty" of both!
