Freedom (ow!) of (lay off me!) (ouch!) speech?

I'm not saying police didn't have the authority to do what they did, but the situation that unfolded here continues to define a country that's only comfortable listening to one side. The story reminded me of another recent NYC controversy involving politics and protestors.

The Britney-Kevin baby must fight even harder for the spotlight, which is a very good thing.
