Yesterday I was traveling and heard an interview with a gentleman regarding this case on one of the FM NPR stations. I did not know any of the details so it took me a few minutes of searching (until I arrived at IMDb.) Anyway, it was an excellent interview and the interview story focused on the legal issues rather than the sensational crime. Which is unusual in this day and time. Bingo this morning, I was surfing on TV and this movie was just starting. Excellent timing, just as so many are afraid to assert or actually learn our 1st Amendment rights, or the interpretation of those rights by the courts. Just odd that's all. It is an excellent movie and still relative although it is 11 years old! What with current events perhaps there should be a remake of this movie instead of "Footloose"
