5-to-4 THE SUPREMES SAY THAT YOU, AN INNOCENT PERSON, HAVE NO RIGHT to refuse to give your name to a cop. Given that this is an era of law enforcement in which you can also be hauled off a cruise ship in shackles on suspicion that you've neglected to pay a $50 fine or get your whole family slapped in jail because you catch a deputy speeding ... things look a bit grim for We the Non-Government People.

But -- yeehaw!!! -- Spaceship One is back on earth and free men are headed for the stars without the blanking government!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
