In any case, it all seems to be antithetical to the freedom of assembly? Unless you think the term means you have the right to put together a bookshelf you bought at Ikea.

It’s possible that the shortened window for competing events may jinx our shot at the Final Four, which might want the city to ensure no one uses the words “final” and “four” in proximity within a 3-mile radius for the period between 2016 and 2017. It would be a pity to lose that event. It’s always good to host a national event that turns the nation’s eyes to our fair city for a few hours — I mean, people are still talking about those shots of Atlanta used between commercials for the 2007 game, don’t you know — but let us try to keep our constitutional rights intact.

Or you might find that the city is requiring you to quarter some of the coaching staff in your spare bedroom.

They’re not troops, so it’s not really a violation of the Third Amendment.
