I heard about the whole Linda Ronstadt thing--you know, how she got booed off the stage for praising Michael Moore and Farenheit 9-11. (Though Democracy Now reported that some of the crowd applauded. Lou Pate on KIRO never mentioned that. Hmmmm.) Methinks this is the time for regular folks to speak up. Politely, perhaps quietly, but we should all speak our minds. Especially when the group is leaning the other way. I think we need to remind folks what dissent sounds like. Now I think I'll go home, pull my copy of Democracy in America off the shelf and reread that bit about the tyrrany of the majority.
