As we count ourselves lucky that we weren’t recently obliterated by passing asteroids, meteoroids, or even hemorrhoids, we look at the other threats to that which we hold dear, arguable and hopefully, more than our lives: our freedoms and civil liberties. Threats against the rights of speech, assembly, religion, press and guns! It’s what that pesky, nasty Bill of Rights is all about, and darned if it doesn’t take a pirate on the fringe to point it out!
