Noah Borgerding

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Washington Senior Legion Baseball Player Noah Borgerding. It's been a terrific start to the season for Noah. He is currently hitting .423 with seven runs scored and five runs batted in. His on-base percentage is .464 and he is slugging .615. Noah played a big role in Sunday evening's 4-3 win over Elsberry. He had two hits with two runs. He usually plays first base, but showed his versatility Sunday night by playing right field. Noah threw out a base runner trying to advance from first to third on a hit to right in the seventh which proved to be a key play in the game. Noah is a graduate of St. Francis Borgia Regional High School in Washington and attended East Central College last year.

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.
