Gordon R. Durand at Zeta Woof appears to prefer the Jefferson 1’s own four-year-old Spectator story on “our nation’s top dog” to my piece on the Memorial incident. Come to think of it, I probably do, too.
WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the ability to quietly listen to 80s hip-hop in the Jefferson Memorial—That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Governed—yeah that’s right, we said BY THE GOVERNED—that whenever any agent of the Government becomes obstructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to get all kinds of pissed off. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Laws long established (read First Amendment) should not be ignored for light and transient Causes; and that “bopping” silently to Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock is one of lightest and most transient of causes we’ve ever heard of.
