The Denver Three

It's been a while since we've heard any news of the Denver Three, and the latest news is, as one of them says, disappointing but not surprising. This brief article from The Rocky Mountain News will bring you up to speed and up to date.

It never ceases to astound me that those folks who make the biggest show of how patriotic they are often are the most hostile to civil liberties. If you're truly a strict constructionist, wouldn't you be a fierce advocate for The Bill of Rights? Wouldn't you laud the ACLU, versus denouncing them as commies?

Of course, who cares if a few hippies get tossed from a publicly-funded event because (according to the current official line) a White House staffer didn't like their bumper sticker?
