    a person's right to petition the government for redress of grievances.

    1st Amendment:
    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    I suppose capturing the notes needed to write stories to be published is ok.....sort of.

    Anyway, it's hard to argue with the government without a lawyer.

    If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never has and never will be. Thomas Jefferson
