Dear “Constitutionalists,”

When you say something so patently stupid and inappropriate you get fired for it, and a bunch of people exercise their free-speech rights to call you a moron and worse for it, it doesn’t mean your constitutional right to free speech is being violated. (That last bit there crying out desperately for an all-cap.)

The Hank Williams thing is actually a beautiful example of free speech in action, just as is OccupyWallSt.

One of the downsides of our technological and e-social revolution is that you get The Stupid waved in your face every day if you’re trying to pay any attention at all to anything communal.
