Stirling Bridge

Yesterday was also the anniversary of the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297. If you are mostly familiar with the history via Braveheart, you may not be aware that there was a bridge. Or why, exactly, it was important to fight the battle. Actually, there's a lot you won't know.

There is a great deal of risk in escalating penalties for speech. Unintended risk, of course, as the proponents of such actions have an unbroken record of being blind to unintended consequences.

If a verbal insult of any nature is considered to be an assault,and carries a equivalent sentence, you may as well bash the bastard in the mouth and go full on. What's to lose? In for a dime, in for a dollar!
