Everyone, I think, remembers Voltaire's famous line about freedom of
speech. The version of it that you are familiar with is actually based on a
faulty translation. What Voltaire actually said was this: "I do not agree
with what you say, sir, though I will defend to the death your right to say
it. But for now ... shut up!"
-- Steve Allen
