Rest In Peace

Following up on the Phelps nutballs, the Illinois House has voted unanimously to approve a ban on funeral protesters, keeping them 200 feet away from services before, during and after. Sounds like a good move. I still wouldn’t mind seeing them jumping off the bridge into the water after the Bluesmobile charges towards them. But this should work too.

    Eh… I think the funeral protesters are first class asshats, but I think legislative action is unnecessary. Really, our lawmakers *should* have better things to do.

    The best solution to stopping the idiot protesters that I’ve seen is the Patriot Guard Riders. That’s a *great* solution: fight distasteful free speech with tasteful free speech. In my mind, that’s a win-win over lawmakers stepping in and abridging rights, no matter how repugnant those exercising the rights may be.
