One of our letters to the Editor of "The Charlotte Observer"
Re: Hillary protesters greet Dean in Charlotte
Once again, Jim Morrill must have been at a different political event than I was. He states that there were about 150 participants at the Howard Dean rally on Friday. I counted about 40 rally participants, ten members of the press, ten police and about seven politicians. I agree that there were about 2 dozen protesters, a significantly higher ratio of protesters to participants. He doesn't mention what a well-organized protest it was, or the fact that Dean was also greeted by Hillary supporters in Greensboro earlier in the day. We will continue to protest while we still have free speech in this country, even if the mainstream media no longer exercises its right.
