"No experiment can be more interesting than that we are now trying, and which we trust will end in establishing the fact, that man may be governed by reason and truth. Our first object should therefore be, to leave open to him all the avenues to truth. The most effectual hitherto found, is the freedom of the press. It is, therefore, the first shut up by those who fear the investigation of their actions." --Thomas Jefferson to John Tyler, 1804.

Don’t watch this at work

Hadn’t watched the Ron Wyden health plan video; just didn’t quite seem to make it to the top of the stack. An e-mail this morning from Wyden’s office included a number of reviews of it, suggesting there might be some entertainment value there. Call us dubious – an entertaining video on a senator’s health care plan.

Well, it is. We’ll give it a thumbs up. But as the e-mail points out, you might want to watch this somewhere other than in an easily observed computer at your workplace. This video actually has a subversive edge: The theme that Wyden’s health plan upholds “the fundamental right of every American to take this job and shove it.”

And, from Idaho, where Paul just delivered a talk at Caldwell: “The self-professed reluctant candidate packed the house Friday as more than 900 people filled the College of Idaho’s Jewett Auditorium to capacity to see Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul.”

This thing could win some converts.
