National Bill of Rights Day

December 15th is National Bill of Rights Day in the U.S. Established in 1941 by President Roosevelt, it celebrates the passage of the first ten ammendments to the U.S. Constitution. Included in these ten ammendments is the first ammendment, which reads:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

What better day than today to support the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund? And, if you join, renew, or make a donation of $25 to the CBLDF, I'll match your donation--see my Second Annual CBLDF Fund Drive for the details.

Remember, it's not just about the money you're donating to a worthwhile cause; it's also about adding your name to the membership roster, showing your support for the freedom to create, sell and read comics. It's about creators, retailers and readers joining together in support of the hobby and artform we enjoy.
