Commercial speech should be free, too

Here's a column from Jack Willis that stands up for commercial speech. It's from the Oklahoma Gazette - somehow I managed to overlook it when it was printed a couple of weeks ago.

While I applaud Willis' stand in favor of freedom in this realm - particularly his recognition that commercial speech is still speech and should be entitled to protection under the First Amendment - the quote from Mark Thomas of the Oklahoma Press Association makes him look appallingly naive considering how oppressive restrictions on commercial and political speech are already.

Yes, the American people do need to stand up for themselves and demand the repeal of those restrictions.
