Last Evening’s Guest Appearance at Stetson University

Last evening, I was fulfilled by the opportunity of being a special guest lecturer at an ACLU function.  The principal topic of the discussion was Free Speech on the Internet.  Also, I did not realize — until after the lecture — that there was an extraordinarily special guest in the audience.  Bernard Cohen approached me following my remarks, and complimented me on the content and manner of the presentation.  This comes as high praise — Attorney Cohen was the crusader who represented Mildred and Richard Loving in the seminal Supreme Court case of Loving v. Virginia.  For those unfamiliar with the important scope of the Loving case, please read here:  http://www.encyclopediavirginia.org/Loving_v_Virginia_1967.  The Loving case vindicated the fundamental right to marriage — under the Due Process Clause, as well as the rights of an interracial couple to be entitled to Equal Protection.
