Boing Boing is one of those sites I check for geek stuff. I realize most of their editorial staff are on the opposite side of the political aisle than me on most issues. Generally, I can ignore it. Then there’s this post.
Black Friday, Texas style: Mall shopper who pulled gun on line-cutter “within rights,” say cops
The headline is completely misleading about the event, and the entire article’s tone is designed to fit into the stereotypes our opponents have of us.
