During colonial times in America, if you wanted to convince or inform people about some issue that you considered important, you went to the local printer and got some pamphlets printed. You then handed them out, read them to anybody that was interested, nailed them to the town bulletin board, or the nearest tree. The first amendment was specifically written to protect this type of activity and the writers or "pamphleteers".Who Links Here

Why the New York Yankees are Doomed to Lose in the Post Season for a Very Long Time
The last year the New York Yankees won the World Series was in 2000.
Since then the post season has looked like this:
2001-Lost the World Series to the Arizona Diamondbacks in seven games.
2002-Lost to the American League Division Series to the Oakland Athletics in four games.
2003-Lost the World Series to the Florida Marlins in six games.
2004-Lost the American League Championship Series to the hated and evil Boston Red Sox in seven games.
2005-Lost the American League Division Series to the Oakland Athletics in five games.
2006-Lost the American League Division Series to the Detroit Tigers in four games.
