Just a quick note for western MA area readers.
First, we hope you will be able to come to our free program this Saturday, December 5th:
Education Or Miseducation: By Accident or Design?
with Dr. Mulazimuddin Rasool
10 a.m.-12:30 at the First Congregational Church, 43 Silver Street in Greenfield
Confederate flag in Greenfield
You may have seen the articles in our local paper, the Greenfield Recorder, about a Greenfield police officer displaying a confederate flag in his garage – with the doors open to public view. The officer is the police department’s representative to the town’s Human Rights Commission!
Read the original article, from yesterday’s paper.
Today’s paper (12/2) includes a second front page story, headlined “Greenfield police sergeant gets support,” and also an editorial stating that the flag “sends wrong signals.”
Come on out!
