"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.

Dorn’s arrest

This could be a major problem that won’t go way easily.

Any number of public elected officials have had charges or convictions on driving under the influence – an offense that has been taken ever more seriously over the last generation.

Watch carefully how he handles this . . .
