The FFFF’s Finest Hour

It’s no secret there is little love between this blog and the Friends for Fullerton’s Future blog, but we tip our hat to Tony Bushala, Travis Kiger and Chris Thompson for their coverage of the Kelly Thomas case.  The July 5th incident got little initial coverage and, frankly, wasn’t a political story until days of…

James Rainey on Civil Discourse by Commenters

Chip Hanlon’s Red County post about censorship by the Fullerton School District in blocking the Friends for Fullerton’s Future was an excellent post not only for the topic, but for the comments it generated.  One commenter had a comment blocked for violating Red County’s terms of service prompting a discussion of censorship (that term only…

Below is his “woe is me” e-mail to people trying to somehow instill pity.

What Blog War?
