86. I said freepers was a stretch scenario
I doubt it actually was freepers. But we don't know! The previous poster indicated that the content of the signs and the race of the holders was all that mattered. But context -- and knowing all of the facts -- is important, too, at least to me.

Again, data-lite discussions. (I've been having those at work today, too.)

And thanks, wndycty, for a provocative talk. I appreciate your desire for consistency. (I share it. I just hope I'm not coming off as hypocritical on that -- I'm trying to be consistent.)
