Had to laugh at a recent news article.

WBC picketed a funeral, then returned to their cars to find their tyres had been slashed.

No-one in town would sell them new tyres.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

____ I hope some one gets their tires before they get there.

I am as pissed of at the people who give WBC the time of day, by protesting agaist them or covering them in the news, as I am at teh WBC.

It's probably worth noting that the WBC tends to talk more than they act.

Also, they're mainly an extended family of wackos, not that big of a 'church.'

I became more aware of the above due to the, *ahem*, press that accompanied a planned demonstration by them for a local production of "The Laramie Project." Sadly, they never made it.

Ash: If you don't protest them, aren't you to an extent supporting their views?
I realize the publicity of the protests gives them a bigger stage, but if I were a family member of a deceased troop whose funeral was being sullied by them, I'd be utterly disgusted. Having a show of support for 'the good guys' would strike me as fitting in that case.

____ This group if asked will show up! I have been on a couple of rides. We each carry a Flag and stand "At ease"

____ Fifty or more bikers in leathers does seem to quiet things down.

_____ Oh poop I forgot the link.

____ I am relieved that, the WBC did not cause a disturbance. I did watch an interview with a church member, that woman is filled with anger.
