Quote of the day

"[Confederate defenders] say [the Civil War] was fought over freedom from an overweening federal power - though it is hard to see how states that had for years suppressed freedom of speech, of the press, of the mails, and of religion can be made the champions of individual liberty (leaving aside the lack of freedom for slaves.)" - Gary Wills, Head & Heart
