First Amendment 101
Arg. Yet another instance of someone that simply
simply doesn't understand the first amendment. Unless the baseball Hall of Fame has suddenly become a government agency, being un-invited to speak there has nothing to do with the First Amendment. Well, I take that back. It does have a lot to do with the First Amendmendment. Barring Robbins from speaking is an excersize of the First Amendment rights of a private organization, the Hall of Fame.

Apparently, Tim Robbins thinks he has a constitutional right to force other people to listen to him. Sigh.

It is a tribute to his acting skills that he has managed to convincingly portray reasonably smart people. I heard audio snips of his speech and he certainly was putting on a Smart Person Voice... it seemed vaughly like an old recording of a 1920s or -30s politician. A Wilsonian/FDR-ish tone, very big on pronouncing every. word. separately.
