    Agreed. I am regularly disappointed, and often depressed, by how eager some people are to diminish freedom. Good evening, AP.

    So, we need a fairness doctrine for what might be said at a public function and all attendees should be required to sit through that?

    That COMPLETELY depends on the circumstances. There are MANY instances in which parents are held liable for their children's actions. I can find instances where kids have gone out and vandalized a school, and their parents were held financially responsible.

    On functions supported by tax moneys citizens get an equal voice.

    Yes, if I had a ten year old out at midnight vandalizing a school, I would and should have some responsibility, but if that "child" were seventeen, not so much...

    The child is still a minor, you are responsible.
