"An Example for the Nation"

Let's hear it for civil dialogue. I can only hope folks on both sides of the issue will repeat the news from US Rep Hank Johnson's town hall meeting in Clarkston, Georgia. The news being: there are real people on each side of this thing with legitimate reasons for their beliefs, positions and opinions.

Maybe there is something to having a well organized, balanced event with well stated rules and Georgia Perimeter College Police on hand.

Props to the cats at Peach Pundit, who post pictures and links to video. They also publish links to the twitter feeds from Drifting Through the Grift and Creative Loafing (the ATL's version of Gambit Weekly).

Maybe, if people stop screaming at each other, we can figure this thing out.
