A Victory for Free Speech

Take it from Jonathan Turley in The Hill: Halloween is again upon us. Across the United States, the prospect of frightening images have some pledging to skip the holiday or closely shield their children.

Colleges and universities have warned students not to dress as Indian chiefs or Mexican bandits, while parents have publicly debated ...
