Quote--Alan Barth

"The notion that the church, the press, and the universities should serve the state is essentially a Communist notion. In a free society these institutions must be wholly free -- which is to say that their function is to serve as checks upon the state."
-- Alan Barth (1906-1979) served on the editorial board of The Washington Post for thirty years
