Aggie Soldier Remembered, Surrounded By Maroon Wall (http://www.kbtx.com/home/headlines/Funeral_for_Aggie_Soldier_Set_for_Thursday_1614451 85.html)

Since this is not a breaking story, I put it here.

Texas A&M students formed a wall around a funeral for Army Lieutenant Colonel Roy Lin Tisdale. The point of the wall was to shield the family and friends of Tinsdale from the Westboro Baptist Church who showed up to protest the funeral.


“We are standing here quietly. We are here for the family,” said Lilly McAlister, a Texas A&M student. "We are positioned with our backs to them. Everyone has been told there's no chanting, no singing, there's no yelling anything back.”

It’s solidarity that these supporters feel Tisdale and his family deserves during this tragic time.

"You don't bury your children, the children bury their parents, but you don't bury your children,” said Linda Tisdale, the soldier’s mother.


Fred Phelps and his crew are the demons among us, spewing hate wherever they go--universally despised by the right and the left.

The lowest form of humanity, making money from the heartbreak of people while contributing to it.

Hey, look! A broken clock that's right once. Amazing.

Sorry, dude, but Fred Phelps and his brood are easy pickings. You won't score any legitimacy points off this in the face of the rest of your crap.

Especially since good old Fred and Algore are friends.
