Also in April, I checked back with Volokh personally to see what was new. He had some good news: He'd just gotten engaged to his girlfriend, Leslie Pereira, an insurance lawyer. And he had some bad news: He'd indeed gotten a ticket for running that red light. But to Volokh, that wasn't really such bad news.

As he puts it: "I was busted fair and square. I really am way too impatient a driver."

"It was well-known that free speech was not free in the sense of not costing any money," says Volokh. "As A.J. Liebling said, 'Freedom of the press belongs to him who owns it.' So my claim was that the advent of new Internet technology would democratize and diversify the free-speech marketplace."
