Freedom of expression & Heartland I

Freedom of expression & Heartland I

        My post on Heartland Institute has generated a great deal of comment both on the comment section and around the blogosphere. See Heartland Panics Over Leak: 71 Year Old Vet, Young Mom Fire Back at Threats. Most of the comments are positive, several are attacking, but I approve all that do not have offensive language.
