Quote of the day: Ancient Rome week

"In a free state there should be freedom of speech and thought." - Tiberius

It is ironic that this should come from an Emperor of Rome.

This is one of those little jewels of wisdom that seems obvious to those of us who live in free states. But how much of it do we take for granted? You only have to look at the Danish Muslim cartoon controversy recently to see how much we overlook this basic point. It also shows us how much the Muslims just don't get it.
