Bloomington school anti-war display nixed

In the Star Tribune today, (and brought to my attention by a reader), a student anti-war display at Bloomington Kennedy high school was taken down after the American Legion complained. They were bothered by what they thought was unclear labeling of the materials.

I can understand the position of the Legion, but threatening to cut off funding is an overreaction. If they were concerned about the source of the materials, a call without threats would have been enough.

Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Assembly... Those are just a few of the principles enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, and that's for everyone. And if the Legionaires would wake up and stop drinking the coolaid they'd realize that those are some of the things the poor kids in Iraq are supposed to be "defending."
Support the students.
