    Never learned that fairy tale.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Not really his girlfriend, then, is it?

    As he had no contact of any kind with the female in question - but then, I suppose that's subjective, in a way...
