But that is besides the point.

Inconvenience does not absolve the government

of its obligation to tolerate speech."

U. S. Supreme Court Justice




"The only shape in which equality is

really connected with justice is this --

justice presupposes general rules.

If these general rules are to be maintained at all,

it is obvious that they must be applied equally

to every case which satisfies their terms."

-- James Fitzjames Stephens
