Historic advice for protesters

The Spokesman-Review

At first I was excited about the front-page story of April 16 (tax day protesters): Wow, citizens publicly airing their grievances! Democracy in action.

However, as I read further, it became obvious that it was nothing more than a right-wing snit fit over losing the last election.

I threw temper tantrums too, when I was a kid, over things not going my way. And later I too joined in public protest over the war in Vietnam and racism in America. And I say now to the April 15 protesters what their ilk said to me back in the ’60s: This is a great country, even if your guy didn’t win. America: Love it or leave it.
