Dear Editor: The Solidarity Sing Along does indeed have a proper permit. We have never sung without the proper permit. It is:

First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

In fact, the purpose of the singalong is precisely to enforce the First Amendment to the Constitution. Indeed, the rotunda of the Wisconsin Capitol from noon to 1 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays is one of the few places, if not the only one, in the United States I know of where any of the Constitution is still enforced at all, and it's enforced by us concerned citizen singers.

Any constitutionally concerned citizen should join us at the Capitol.

Ted Voth Jr.
