Censorship in the United States, puts us on a slippery slope, to say the least. We are confronted with a lot of hateful speech almost minute by minute. However, we hold dear the freedom of speech this country gives us. Over the last week though, several newspapers enforced censorship by not showing Doonesbury political satire cartoons on abortions. In that particular case, a business enterprise exercised their own form of censorship. While I may personally despise some of the hateful comments, speeches, written words, etc., by fringe element zealots, I do have the wherewithal to ignore them or counter with my own opinion pieces. Freedom of speech is what makes us unique.
