Geri's Fred

Oh my, the Sierra Club?

It says here that anti-immigration activists are/have been attempting to take over the Sierra Club so they can deliver their [expletive deleted] message in a seemingly innocuous and ostensibly "liberal" wrapper. Grumble.

For more information, check out this link at the Southern Poverty Law Center's Intelligence Report web site: Hostile Takeover.

For the record, while I believe it as reasonable and permissible to discuss immigration concerns as it is to discuss environmental concerns, I don't believe is it appropriate to mix the two; I think it's even less appropriate to hijack one discussion to make points about another.

Unca Fredcritter sez: Hey Kids! If you do this and post it, remember to check the "Don't auto-format:" box in the settings so as not to take up lots of extra vertical space!!!

He also mutters that he sometimes feels rather old and tired, but that's not important now…
