    5 out of 9 Justices determined that the First Amendment actually means what it says.

    4 out of the 9 expressed deep concern that free speech has implications. And they are right. It does.

    There are appropriate ways to deal with the concerns expressed by the dissenters. Stifling free speech is not one of them.

    Bravo for the integrity shown by this slim majority!
