Without subscribing to every particular of the district court's thoughtful opinion, we are in accord with the court's conclusion that plaintiff has failed to state any claim upon which relief can be granted and with the substance of its analysis material to that conclusion. Fed.R.Civ.P. 12(b)(6). We need not and do not pass upon the correctness of the lower court's preliminary description of the bearing of the first amendment in cases such as this. As the complaint fails to state any cause of action, there is no practical need to review the correctness of the district court's decision that it lacked personal jurisdiction over the other two defendants, and we do not do so.
