Remember my sign? It arrived last Thursday, we installed it Thursday night.
Saturday morning, when I went out to get the paper, it was gone.
We wrote a letter to the editor of the local paper - an on-line only "paper". They're "printing" the letter tomorrow. I can't post the complete text of the letter because there are far too many references to our town and its people and redacting the distinguishing marks would vitiate the power of the letter.
But here's one paragraph:
We would like to think that someone took it because they were so enamored of the wit and sentiment of the sign that they wanted it for themselves. We fear, however, that someone was offended by its hardly immoderate language and didn’t think a second before snatching it from our property. Didn’t think a second about how their intolerant and immoderate censorship is precisely what the First Amendment exists to protect us from.
I was going to install the second one at my mother's house. Instead, I think we'll rig a pole up in a tree, out of reach of the bastards. They'll probably throw eggs, and we'll probably have to write another letter to the editor.
But, damn it, I will not have my right to free speech abrogated in this day and age.
