On behalf of Bookworm, I’m reposting her account of an NRO Cruise she’s embarked on . Enjoy!

Today’s seminars were about the First and Second Amendment discussions. Both panels were interesting but I was absurdly gratified to discover that, with few exceptions, nothing was said that we at the Bookworm Room (both authors and commenters) haven’t already addressed, analyzed, concluded, or otherwise worked over factually and intellectually.
I wasn’t bored by the redundancy, though, because the panel members were unusually informed and witty. I did not take notes, but I will try to dredge up from the dim recesses of my memory some of the things that particularly struck me.
The first panel, which is the subject for this post, was on the First Amendment. James Lileks moderated a panel composed of David French, Charles Cooke, Jonah Goldberg, and Ramesh Ponnuru.
