The freedom to express one's political views is a treasured part of our democracy. I have proudly displayed yard signs for David Sparrow and the Kerry/Edwards ticket for several weeks so I was quite upset this morning to open my front door and discover that the Kerry/Edwards sign had disappreared! Although I know I will not have my sign returned, I did report the theft to the police. I was further dismayed when I called Democratic Headquarters about getting a new sign to learn that I was the second person who had reported the loss of a Kerry/Edwards sign. Stealing is not the way to express differences of opinion, political or otherwise. I sincerely hope that the person(s) responsible for these thefts will be stopped.
