Wasn't it Justice Holmes who once wrote, with respect to First Amendment rights and protected speech, you don't have the right to yell fire in a crowded theatre?

Well how about burning the Quran when you have thousands of American and Allied troops in harm's way in Iraq and Afghanistan?

There has already been rioting and protest world-wide in anticipation of this Idiot's plan to burn the Quran.
