Don’t you think it is time to celebrate George Washington Day on February 22? Read Allan C. Miller’s piece, A Presidents Day perspective on the nature of a free press. I have had the following quote from George Washington (March 15, 1783) on my Facebook page:
“the freedom of Speech may be taken away—and, dumb & silent we may be led, like sheep, to the Slaughter.”
From George Washington’s Mount Vernon page on the National Gazette (established in 1791):
“George Washington's support for a free press and the First Amendment ironically helped to make the National Gazette possible.”
In this episode I will tell a little about my future plans, as I soon will reach the milestone of 100+ published episodes of this podcast, since I started podcasting in 2006.
