Protected speech

Here's an interesting link to an Odds and Ends story on boston.com. Imagine being fined for giving someone the bird while you're driving. The Pittsburgh guy who was cited has filed a lawsuit saying his middle finger is protected by the First Amendment. I agree, especially since I have been known to signal displeasure with a particular finger. I don't use it often, but sometimes it is very satisfying to use to get a message across.
