Freedom to Whistle & Sing

Posted by admin at April 24. 2014

Is my voice a musical instrument? If I'm singing, am I performing, or is it a type of speech? If I walk as I'm singing, will I be in violation of the new ordinance, with its 'permitted expression' zones? If I sit on a bench and talk about the need to get money out of politics, is that less offensive to private interests than singing a Woody Guthrie song?

The continuing attempts in Galena's City Council to whittle the right of free expression to the narrow interests of certain Main Street merchants seems the perfect complement to the Supreme Court's radically divisive rulings on money in politics.
