Notes: What is protected free speech is often in the eye of the beholder. This week the United States Senate rejected the flag-burning amendment to the Constitution offered by Sen. Orrin Hatch that had already passed the House. This was the third defeat for such an amendment since the United States Supreme Court struck down a flag-desecration law. Additionally this week, the Supremes ruled that -- while nude dancing is expression -- cities may restrict it. Also this week, the Court heard arguments in a case concerning the legality of student-led prayers at high school football games. Meanwhile reformers want to limit campaign contributions, but some conservatives -- like Ambassador Alan Keyes and candidate Pat Buchanan -- believe that campaign contributions are a form of constitutionally protected free speech. 03.30.00
