Nice to hear that the media sock puppets are aping the neo-Confederate
ancestor worshippers.  Ever since 9-11, they've have been hopping up and
down denouncing John Brown as a forerunner of Osama bin Laden.  They
deliberately misrepresent the historical record on Kansas as well to depict
poor ol' Southern boys getting butchered as an act of terror to intimidate
those misunderstood freedom-loving slaveholders.

Part of what they're trying to do is to discredit the value of the Harpers
Ferry example.

On the other hand, the anti-abortion fanatics are also claiming John Brown
as one of theirs.

You listen to this stuff, and you wonder how it is that antibodies of common
sense and consistency in their brains don't just attack and consume that
organ completely.

Of course, how would we tell?
