IN BRITAIN, IT’S D-Day For Press Freedom, as political hacks try to muzzle newspapers. It’s not for me to tell Brits what to do, of course, but personally I think anyone who votes in favor of newspaper licensing should be dragged from his or her bed, whipped through the streets, and then hanged from a lamppost. But then, I’m old-fashioned. It would be nice, though, if Westerners defended their traditional liberties with the vigor shown by Muslims defending the Koran.
