St. Clair Kids Found Safe

Two St. Clair children missing overnight have been found safe. Franklin County Sheriff Gary Toelke said 11-year-old Scotty Warner and 13-year-old Erica Linsley have both now been located. They had been missing since last night when they were last seen playing outside Erica's home in a remote area of white road near highway K. Emergency crews had searched for the pair since midnight with dogs, helicopters and boats due to the close proximity to the Meramec River. Toelke says the boy walked into his yard about 9:30 a.m. and led authorities to a nearby field where he thought the girl would be. She wasn't there, but searchers found her hiding under a porch near her home shortly after.

Thomas Jefferson, proponent of the Bill of Rights, could never have conceived just how many venues there are today for First-Amendment protected speech.

What he also could not have conceived is how this phenomenon of pervasive media has actually stymied, not enhanced, the free speech expression of presidential candidates.
