I am encouraged by the careful attention to details John Bratton's letter repesents. It is hoped that citizens might likewise exercise their liberty with such awareness as to insure justice governs this land rather than self interest.
Given that PalinPak's June 12th ad encouraging supporters to remove Arizona Rep. Giffords e.g. "shoot a fully loaded automatic M-16" and the shooting having now occurred as of today, one has to wonder how persons running for national office can get away with criminal speech-acts while innocent children are virtually molested by TSA at security checkpoints in airlines on a regular basis.
We are fortunate to have concerned, informed, and active citizens so well exemplified by John Bratton articulating a social consciousness that affirms the ideals of representative government.
