    Free speech, for those who can afford it

    Forgive me for borrowing items from Americablog but the point/counterpoint of these was too good to pass up. First the original news story that started it: Moulton woman says she lost job for sporting Kerry sticker on car. Then comes some choice tidbits from a popular conservative website.

    There are two points that strike me. One, the startling disconnect between the newspaper account and the comments made about it on the conservative side. The comments seem to attribute facts to the story that aren't there. Perhaps these people are getting their facts from another source? Two, the idea that someone can be fired for having a bumpersticker on their car is so unjust, so bent on suppression of opposing views that it takes my breath away.
