    You can predict the reaction...

    if any, from the liberal east coast media and the liberal west coast media: "Yes, well, that's just Iowa; they're nothing but a bunch of redneck midwestern hicks anyway. WE are the ones who Know The Score, and Have The Word. And we will tell you what we want you to know."

    That sounds pretty reactionary for me. I wish I thought I was wrong.

    And very proud of it! Any more I take it as a complement because of the values the stereotype represents. Oh and then I call them a "Leftist commie hippie" and walk away. :D

    Refreshing to see, especially from the generally "liberal side" of the state.

    My Hats off to my southern neighbor Beth.
    She gets it !
    I hope that the voice of reason, and the defense of personal freedom that exists in rural and small town america can overcome the big city attitude that seems to feed on government control.

    My apologies!

    Lambo 119 and anyone else I may have offended: I now see that my wording was confusing. Apologies.

    I meant that my slightly sarcastic characterization of the east and west coast media comes across, to me, having written it, as reactionary for me.

    And I wish I didn't have reason to think that the major media, east and west, were so very liberal-biased. Some in the middle of the continent are biased that way, too.

    Anyhow, sorry for the confusion.

    Nice to see them do this, although it still doesn't make up for them posting the names and addresses of CCW holders a few weeks back.

    A similar opinion piece I just ran across.

    Similar in the "I may sound paranoid, but..." qualifying statements before the writers start talking about the real reason for the Second Amendment.

    This is a very good trend.
