A quick political aside: Hurrah for the First Amendment

Chris will be posting a more writerly/agency-focused Upstart Crow Literary post in a short while, but in the meantime, I must post this bit of brilliant truth-telling by Barney Frank. He’s got the right of things, regardless of where you stand on the issue of national healthcare. If only everyone in politics were as articulate.

(And should your politics not align with mine, please feel free to skip this.)

  6. I don’t know what other freelance writers and illustrators do for health insurance, but I’ve been without it for fifteen years. And it’s hard to draw and write with your fingers crossed. Go get ’em, Barney.
