1. I can't afford cable or satellite BUT, all is not lost!

I get Current via the internet here---> http://www.thertv.eu/

The local cable company doesn't carry Current so even if I
could afford their service I'd be out of luck. Getting excellent
picture and audio...even KO!

2. Jessica Ahlquist deservers the support of all those who are sane or consider themselves good people.

I believe that the fanatics threatening her and those like them in similar situations have a mental illness and should be treated for such.

It takes a lot of courage to do what's right when so many around you are wrong.

3. Wish this surprised me. The opposite would

Can't remember a single story about an atheist who had to resort to the courts to enforce the Bill of Rights (and why is that necessary? Which morons on the school board and in administration couldn't see this was obvious establishment?) which didn't result in death threats, abuse, ostracism, and hate from Christians showing their love and fellowship. Newdow? Lambert? Whitehead? Yep pretty much all the same.
