Free the Speech


 From a proposed bill that would have labeled records with this list of "offenses." It didn't pass, but I remember circulating this with the petition to stop this thing dead in its tracks. In the 90s. censorship was seens as a conservative issue -- right-wing politicians getting their panties in a bunch over Mapplethorpe's photography or even the PMRC, which was a liberal organization, still seen in the eyes of those truly on the left as "conservative," or at least, incredubly misguided. How the tide has turned.
