British colloquialisms aside, (and yeah, we’re that pretentious) we Americans love our constitution, especially when it comes to the first amendment and our beloved free speech. Berkeley even named a whole darn cafe after it! So it only follows that this Tuesday Sept. 14, from 6-8 p.m. at the Free Speech Movement Cafe (where else?), emeritus history professor Leon Litwack will give a lecture on the Free Speech Movement and the Constitution.

Having a Free Speech Movement discussion at the FSM seems a little too adorable, but you have to admit, this is still a very relevant issue. After all, what about that guy who wanted to go around burning Qu’rans? That certainly keeps the free speech debate current.

It doesn’t hurt to brush up on your Berkeley history, either. The rest of the country just assumes we’re still hippies, so we might as well know a little something about it. That stereotype is kinda fun to perpetuate.

Then following a truly long time, a decade perhaps, it is possible to become a captain.

One of the things I along the lines of about reading websites such because this, is that there isn’t any spelling or even lexical errors! Causes it to be difficult about the reader occasionally. Very good work upon that and also that the topic of this website. Lots of thanks!
