Quotation on freedom

"Everybody is in favor

of The First Amendment.

But we'd have a hell

of a time ratifying it today."

-- Patrick Leahy, U.S. senator (D-Vt.),

Leahy made that statement in 2000 -- before the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Since 9/11, what is the likelihood that we'd enact a First Amendment today?
