Choosing sides

I’ve been a First Amendment Nut as long as I can remember. Back in the day when the battles were over sexual verbiage and descriptions, that meant defending the likes of Henry Miller & D.H. Lawrence on principle and because those who wanted to suppress them were worse.

Now it’s Julian Assange, a shit disturber who gets his kicks spilling secrets, whether it’s American war crimes or the names of closeted gay people in countries where outing could mean death. Again, the principle and the opponents. In traditional diplomatic parlance, he’s a son of a bitch but he’s our son a bitch.
