While I agree that everyone should have the right to rally in national parks, regardless of their abhorrent views, it's still gratifying to hear that this weekend's Klu Klux Klan rally has been canceled:
Ku Klux Klan (KKK) members hoping to rally on Saturday at Gettysburg, the site of one of the bloodiest battles of the U.S. Civil War, were disappointed when their plans were scuttled by a government shutdown.
Amid public outrage, the National Parks Service had granted a permit last week to the Maryland-based Confederate White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.
I put a Gettysburg friend of mine on the alert—if she sees any KKKrying about town, she's to bottle their tears and FedEx them to me. The Loyal White Knights will be the last to admit it but their tears are a surprisingly delicious seasoning, especially on Mexican food.
