MisTimed

C'mon Time magazine. I open the Sept. 20 issue looking for something to read over breakfast and there's a history (mostly not online) of book burnings that includes this:
1650 A subversive theological text written by William Pynchon is torched in Boston Common--the U.S.'s first known book burning.
Why didn't they respect the First Amendment back in 1650?
