Heat Take Game Two

LeBron James and the Heat are headed back to Miami with the NBA Finals tied at
a game apiece after bouncing back from a humbling loss in the series opener.
James poured in 35 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and assisted on Chris Bosh's
go-ahead 3-pointer down the stretch as the Heat stole Game 2, 98-96, at a much
cooler AT&T Center. Bosh finished with 18 points, while Dwyane Wade and
Rashard Lewis added 14 apiece for the Heat, who once again avoided back-to-
back losses by shooting 52.9 percent from the floor. The Spurs were led by
Tony Parker's 21 points and seven assists, while Tim Duncan totaled 18 points
with 15 rebounds to tie Magic Johnson for the most postseason double-doubles
in NBA history with 157. Manu Ginobili donated 19 points off San Antonio's
bench but missed two shots and committed a crucial turnover in the final
minute.

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.
