free speech zones

AP: Convention Protesters Upset With Site

I'm extremely disappointed that the Democratic Convention is shunting protesters out of sight and mind. We should be taking the higher ground.

I want to hear Kerry say he wouldn't have people with anti-Kerry t-shirts removed from a public event when he's president. Obviously that's not going to happen if he's willing to treat protesters--many of whom are to the left of him--like this now.

The reality is that none of the tactics that target protesting and free speech can have any impact on preventing terrorism. That's just a given.

How disappointing.
