Happy birthday, Constitution, with special thanks for your First Amendment

Courtesy of the Society of Professional Journalists:

Michigan high school journalists rallied Wednesday on the steps of the state
Capitol to celebrate Constitution Day and promote legislative efforts to pass a student
press rights law. Joining the students was Mary Beth Tinker, who was among plaintiffs in the landmark Tinker v. Des Moines ruling that declared students don't lose their First Amendment rights at the
schoolhouse gate. The event was supported by the Michigan Interscholastic Press Association and SPJ's Detroit and Mid-Michigan chapters.
