Rams Prepare For Niners

The Rams are back practicing today as they prepare for Sunday's game at San Francisco. The Rams are coming off their bye week and are looking to snap a three-game skid after a 45-7 loss to the Patriots in London in Week Eight. St. Louis is 3-and-5. The Niners are 6-and-2.

The future of the Rams in St. Louis could become clearer early next year. The "Post-Dispatch" reports an arbitration hearing on the team's lease at the Edward Jones Dome is set for January 14th. The Rams and Convention and Visitors Commission have been unable to agree on a renovation plan for the Dome. The Rams can leave St. Louis after 2014 without venue improvements.

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.
