QUOTE OF THE DAY: "Liberty may be endangered by the abuses of liberty, as well as by the abuses of power … Yet, who would reason, that there should be no liberty, because it had been, or it might be, abused? Tyranny itself would not desire a more cogent argument, than that the danger of abuse was a ground for the denial of a right." – Justice Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833
