Today, Stu Bykofsky wrote an article that says that OC is legal but stupid, He compares it to burning the US flag. The are plenty of on-line responses already but there needs to be some calm and reasoned letters to the editor printed to get to the readership. I will be noting the "legal but stupid" Freedom Riders who went down South some 50 years ago this month. They changed civil rights in spite of the lack of motivation in any level of government. The PPD should be ashamed to stand in the shoes of Sheriff Bull Conner and the other southern sheriffs and their departments of 50 years ago in denying good people their basic rights.

There's also a poll we need to hit - spread the word.

Would you care if residents openly carried legal guns in Philly?
Yes; I don't want to see openly carried guns, even if they are legal
No, it's legal and that's fine by me

Currently running 262 "Baaaaaa" to 353 "I support civil rights"


PS - is that a picture of Mark in the red shirt? Pretty good-looking! :D

You might want to keep in mind, even idiots are entitled to their opinions.

They question is, why are you bothering to purchases such junk journalism? Those people are in business to sell that stuff - don't support them. Why pay the idiot for his opinion? If anything, let him pay you for spending your time to read/listen to his.

As for "some calm and reasons letters to the editor", you're not going to change their minds. Don't waste the time or the postage expense.

As for their having shame, most of the media heads these days, print and electronic, have no sense of shame (not that they ever did) and nothing you say or do will change that - just don't support them. Don't purchase their print media, don't waste your time watching their biased reporting on TV. The Internet is taking over news reporting and if you're after the truth (or most of it) go to the Internet. There are tens of thousands of good avenues of good reporting going on, regarding any topic which may be of interest to you and others here at the OC forum.
