Careful what you wear in the Land of the Free

An amazing story from the USA, of a couple in Charleston, West Virginia who wore T-shirts with anti-GW Bush slogans when they attended the President's official Fourth of July appearance at the State Capitol.

Jeff and Nicole Rank were ejected from the rally, arrested, handcuffed, fingerprinted and remanded to appear in court at a later date. And Nicole then found herself sacked from her job in classical Kafkaesque fashion.

The original report in the Charleston Gazette appears to be no longer available online, but it's the second of three items in Ralph R Reiland's July 19 column in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

And you thought Linda Ronstadt bringing politics into her Las Vegas show was disgusting!
