I need to start this off with a note to the editor:
Put a bright yellow border around this column with the words "Designated Free Speech Area" stenciled in.
That would match what Modesto city officials recently imposed upon the sidewalk at the transportation center downtown.

Designated Free Speech Area at Modesto CA Transportation Depot

Read the entire column in my local smut sheet, The MODESTO BEE.
Please read it.

Jeff Jardine is the Community Happenin's writer for the Bee - covers all kind of weird shit - and while I mostly don't agree with most of what he says because he's a commie newspaper reporter, he's dead on with this column.
A designated Free Speech area is a contradiction of terms - If you have a designated area to speak in, then it isn't Free Speech now, is it? It's now restricted speech.
Just goes to show what a bunch of fucking idiots we have running our City and police department.
