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

The Refdesk Sites of the Day are:
Audubon's Birds of America
Audubon would like to thank Richard Buonanno for compiling the content for this online version of John James Audubon's Birds of America, now available for display on Audubon.org. It is from an 1840 'First Octavo Edition' of Audubon's complete seven volume text, and presents Audubon's images and original text descriptions. Bird species can be found listed alphabetically, or categorized by family. Audubon's drawings of some species' anatomical features are also included in the 'Figures' section. The list of species that have gone extinct since Audubon's time was provided by Mr. Buonanno, as was the list of State Birds.
