Yesterday's question of the day asked: Someone once said "If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter." Who was it? That would be none other than George Washington!

Edward BoraskyEdward TennerHiram Reisner4thDraftMarty Rayeschuman, freelance journalist Amy ZipkinMiriam van Ommeren, and Ron Casalotti for also answering correctly!
