Slow down sparky. The First Amendment doesn't have the "In order to maintain a well regulated militia"-type clause.

Moreover, even thought the First Amendment clearly forbids Congressional abridgment of the Press, the Supreme Court has allowed multiple exceptions.

So. Take your pocket copy of the Bill of Rights and put it back in your pocket. Grownups are talking.

Comment: Old news.. Caterpillar had these in the early 80's (Score 2) 64

When I was in the fifth grade (1982), I visited the Caterpillar International headquarters' IT center in East Peoria. For some damfool reason, they had a robotic mail carrier that followed a trail of chemicals laid down into the carpeting to wander around the floor, carrying mail and such.

This was before email, I guess, but no, I don't know why they had it either. It was boss, though.
