I missed the bylines, the excitement of going after a story, and the continuous blackjack game we had going in the editor's office between deadlines.
Still, I was grateful to have been fired. It gave me, for the first time, a passionate interest in the First Amendment, its history, triumphs, and defeats.
As for Carolyn Sleeth, the editor of the Stanford Daily, she said in a recent editorial, "We are dedicated to preserving the right of both freedom and speech and the principle of individual privacy."
But Chelsea Clinton is a public figure and therefore, in First Amendment law, has less privacy than a private person. So this editor has gagged an entire staff while speaking of her devotion to free speech. This editor speaks, as the First Father often does, in doublespeak.
