MORE GREAT MINDS, says my partner-in-project as he sends me the link to this column on fear and courage (topics that he and I have been much concerned with).
Once again, fear requires mere reaction while courage, as Karen Kwiatkowski recognizes, requires independent action and thought.
The bizarre story that begins her exhortation is a shameful thing. In a free country the cop involved (and all who back him) wouldn't be trusted to shovel horse poop in a parade and would justifiably be shot by outraged defenders of the Bill of Rights for entering private property on such a queasy cause.
