Leave the First Amendment alone

Dear Editor:

I am aghast that an Aspen Times reader wrote her letter to the editor advocating that we abandon our most cherished freedom of speech to appease foreign thugs and make it illegal to irritate Muslims (“Freedom must be used responsibly,” Sept. 20).

If we tinker with our Constitution to appease aggressors, we are finished as a great nation.

Bill Bernstein
