It's not true, but I challenge anyone to say it is not a goal worth working for. Thurgood Marshall If the First Amendment means anything, it means that a state has no business telling a man, sitting alone in his house, what books he may read or what films he may watch. Thurgood Marshall Our whole constitutional heritage rebels at the thought of giving government the power to control men's minds.
