Herb: We Protesteth Too Much

Some from our community have decided that this park bench caper is so important that they should do a sixties era sit-in. Some were quoted as officials from the Bayview Chamber of commerce, lending that reputation to this comical stunt. One can only wonder how many folks out there in newspaper land are spitting out their coffee laughing after reading of this vital world crisis.With our economy in the tank, unemployment high and behavioral issues out of control, that such a petty cause would engender such activism/Herb Huseland, Bay Views. More here.

DFO: Herb brings up an interesting point. Every day brings another protest, whether it's against Sarah Palin, Barack Obama, Arizona immigration law, or toplessness in Maine.

Question: Do we protest too much in this country?
