The Free Speech Exception

When has it been permissible to ban free expression in this country?

Answer: In cases when the offending comments are perhaps in bad taste, but hopelessly innocuous.

Michael Moore can slander our health care system, Harry Reid can give moral comfort to al Qaeda, and liberal bloggers can claim Bush is worse than Hitler and Stalin, yet a high school student cannot make a controversial remark about marijuana.
