Kathleen Parker: Free speech means sometimes saying you're sorry: "I'd rather that Boykin not be fired in order to prove to our enemies that we're not so thin-skinned after all, that by our governing laws we tolerate ideas not necessarily our own. That we are vigilant in protecting the thing that drives them wild - our freedom."

Right on, Ms. Parker. If we give up our freedoms in order to prove that we like our enemies, we will become like our enemies and they still won't like us, and we won't like ourselves either if we become too much like them.
