What the Heck Did Santa Do?

A fellow in Miami Beach has set out a striking Christmas display. For me, the interesting and scary thing about this story isn't that this fellow put up a blindfolded and bound Santa hanging from a noose in a tree (tho it certainly is a clear signal that he has some issues he's working through), but that his neighbors actually complained to the police, thinking that the police would be able to do something about it. It's scary that so few people have any notion of First Amendment rights. I mean, the FIRST AMENDMENT is not written in some esoteric codicile that only 128th degree Masons are allowed to consult. Anyone who has made it through sixth grade should have a basic understanding of it.
