First Amendment OK for LIberals, Too

RECEIVED Mon., Sept. 13, 2004

Dear Editor,
   In regard to Michael Foster's letter ["Postmarks," Sept. 3]. What Louis Black said didn’t even resemble the retarded Republican rhetoric that Michael spewed out. What Louis Black said was that even though he was under no obligation – and some of the writers used rude and or threatening language – he would still print the letters. The fact that Michael brought Tim Robbins and the Dixie Chicks into it didn’t bother me as much as the fact that he left David Koresh and Randy Weaver out. I mean, they must have been involved somehow in this evil liberal conspiracy. You know when a Chronicle writer and a free-cable dude are going at it something’s got to be up. I’m just afraid some loyal American who sells sawed-off shotguns to people is gonna be attacked by some rogue government agency. Like the police. Well, I don’t want to get hysterical so I’ll leave you with something I read in the Statesman. After Howard Stern was fined by the FCC because Janet Jackson showed her boob to a bunch of brain-dead football junkies. A woman wrote in and said, "I think George Carlin is a lot more disgusting."
