The whole point of free speech is not to make ideas exempt from criticism but to expose them to it.

I want to post this up front where everybody can see it.

Please, please write to your congressmen and women about this. And the President. This kind of thing is intolerable.

Are you saying, Bill, that it is intolerable for the CIA to advise Peruvian jet pilots to shoot down missionary planes in Peru? Good call.

Forgive the lapse into sarcasm, but the symptoms of sickness are not the enemy; it is the sickness itself. That sickness is a disease whose name I am barred by court order from mentioning.

The whole situation is intolerable.

I'd be careful about throwing around the "disease" label, Bob. It's way too easy for your meaning to be misconstrued. To be sure, there are multiple diseases in play in the equation physical, psychological, and social, but the upshot is, the way they're all being "treated" is wrong on all counts. Thus, insanity reigns as people are suffering and dying needlessly.
