Callvin Trillin: Sheldon Adelson's Free Speech

"Casino mogul Sheldon Adelson is on the brink of reaching $71 million in contributions thus far in this election cycle."

Yes, money is speech, so the court has decreed.

While Adelson thinks this is splendid,

The rest of us wonder, as cash calls the tune,

Is this what the Framers intended?
