And It Came to Pass

February 1980
National Review;2/22/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 4, p201
The article presents information on developments related to civil liberties in Massachusetts. A new law went into effect in Massachusetts, under which teachers must seek a student volunteer to lead the class in prayer and the objectors must be asked to leave the room. The law's constitutionality has been challenged by civil libertarians. An earthquake rating 9.8 on the Richter scale took hundreds of lives in the city of Belmont, Massachusetts. An epidemic of cholera rages even now in Amherst, Massachusetts. The American Red Cross has been unable to find volunteers even to enter the state. The American Civil Liberties Union has asked for emergency donations to finance the construction of an ark.
