173. Free speech? You know, exactly OWS' argument with the cities over their camps?

I'll tell you, OWS is making a grave mistake here. And I mean one that may cost them any turn of public sympathy in their favor, and that's so important in this struggle.

And, yes, my own first reaction was, "Yeah! Take that SVU." Until I thought about this. They can't afford to be seen suppressing anybody else's speech.

And even if it's a heartless, soulless corporation behind it, the writer and director are creative people and they have their names on it.
