Even though she's been told to sit down and shut up, I wonder if Ms. Fulton would like to step forward and give her opinion?  How would she really like her son to be remembered?

Updated: I'm adding links to news stories as they come to light.  How long with this list grow?  How many stories have not been publicly reported?

Go Read: Bob Owens at PJ Media lists 15 victims so far;  I will compare and add here as I am able.

Free Bumper Sticker!

Get your free bumper sticker!  You have to go to the website.  You do have to give them your name and address in order to receive the bumper sticker.  Hmm.  Data-mining, anyone?

If you don't mind that, it should be fun to cut up the sticker and put it on your bumper like this:

Treat Them Kindly

Lefty Activists Crash Romney's Event (h/t )
(From The Corner blog at National Review Online)
Philadelphia, Pa. — Progressive activists stormed the Franklin Institute this evening. They clashed with tea-party organizer Don Adams, who blocked them from entering. It was a wild, tense scene, just minutes before Mitt Romney appeared here. Adams, who is the man at the door in this video [please go to original article to see video] of the incident, tells NRO that the “nasty” exchange is an example of what Romney will face this fall. 
The article contains an update from the AP which reports:
The protesters said that when they tried to go inside, they were refused entry. Event organizers eventually granted them refunds for their $20 tickets after they chanted loudly on the steps.
The activists, who were from groups such as Occupy Philly and Fight For Philly, said they just wanted to ask Romney questions about his policies. 
I say, let them in.  If it is true they paid their money and they had tickets, let them in.   If they wish to ask him questions, it can be done during a regular question-and-answer segment of his visit.   I would like to see a reasonable and rational Romney answer a reasonably asked question, even if it is an irrational question.

Treat them kindly.  They won't know how to react.

Pain is Pain

Mark Judge's piece today over at The Daily Caller resonates with me.   Entitled "The End of My White Guilt",  he observes.

Black pain is no different than white pain
I think this is true.  I don't believe there are greater or lesser degrees of human suffering based upon color of skin or cultural/ethnic environment.  Pain is pain.
