What does Cricket have to do with the Declaration of Independence?

And where was this taken? It doesn't look like the National Archives. Or were you in Norman Lear's house? He owns one, doesn't he?

That's actually Norman Lear's copy, but it was on display at the CTIA trade show in Las Vegas, where I was attending for the Day Job.

Ah hah! I was wondering if they'd put ads in the National Archive, or if it was traveling, or what.

Oh, and Cricket was sponsoring the copy being there, since it was a mobile communications industry trade show.

Your Rights, as sponsored by Cricket.

I just had a flashback to Ray Winnegar's Underground, a dystopian cyberpunk/superhero RPG where corporations sponsored Constitutional Amendments.

Security must have been lax. How could they let a liberal anywhere near such a hallowed American document? Next thing you know, you'll be quoting from it in public places, and expecting the government to subscribe to your absurd interpretations.
