Bill of Rights 230th Anniversary

Post by Christopher K. »

This December (and hopefully all this year) we celebrate and appreciate the stunning accomplishment of placing onto paper a list of rights that cannot ever be separated from the citizenry. The Bill of Rights was invaluable in the history of STEM investigations in our country, as the Bill outlines the inherent right of every American citizen to promote or at least objectively discuss those ideas, hypotheses and theories that may not be popular or in current fashion.

The Highland Road Park Observatory has installed the Free to Wonder, Free to Ask, Free to Hear, Free to Decide Display...
http://hrpo.lsu.edu/observatory/display_3.html

This display will be expanded during the calendar year. The central panel contains the text of the Bill of Rights. The left panel will be used to rotate various true stories illustrating the importance of the Bill of Rights in promoting STEM and various quotes from past and present American people referring to the sanctity of the ability to speak one’s mind. The right panel will showcase a rotating list of words and phrases the use of which certain committees and groups on taxpayer-funded campuses have suggested be banned, restricted or frowned-upon for various good-sounding reasons.

Expansion of the Display begins this week. Many of the games offered to patrons during the remaining Plus Nights and the Spooky Spectrum will incorporate information from the Display.
