notes on government, sports and popular culture
Great letter to the editor
in today's N&R, from Mr. Arthur Julich.
Mr. Julich not only denounces the four young men who stole the Kerry-Edwards sign from his yard, but places the incident in a broader context:
"Freedom of speech is apparently limited to those who support the current occupant of the White House, according to four of his supporters," he writes.
My advice to Mr. Julich: Get another Kerry-Edwards sign and put it in your yard. They're plenty to be had. Show these four young Bush operatives that, no matter how hard they try, they cannot squelch your freedom of speech.
Better yet, a Kerry-Edwards bumper sticker cannot be stolen as easily. Trust me, there are plenty of them to go around, too.
