Overheard at Booth 3

Hey, did you hear that the government is going to try to bring charges against that WikiLeaks guy for espionage?

Isn't freedom of the press protected by the Constitution?

Everyone thought it was, but then they're talking about enforcing the Espionage Act of 1917. Here, check it out:

Dang - that's some hard core stuff. That $10,000 fine, is that in 1917 dollars? Do you think they'll adjust for inflation?

No kiddin'! What crazes me out is the fact that I've always heard the Republicans blasting Woodrow Wilson for being such a mamby pamby liberal, I mean, Glenn Beck even blamed him for the housing crash of 2008, for gossakes, and here he is putting into place a law that'll get you thrown in jail just for even talking BAD about the military!

Sounds to me like we're drowning in our history but we still have no idea what we're swallowing!
