Thanks, Fran.

I went to the link you provided and read about Brazil, and followed up on some of the others.

But honestly? Before I got on your website this morning, I googled "Malheur and Oregon" to see what had happened with the Hammonds.

The Hammonds - father and son - had peaceably agreed to go back to jail as per the 9th circuit court's order. But the thing that "got me" was all the "news" and comment I saw at the nydailynews and the nytimes websites while I was following the google links.

"Right-wing gunslingers" was only one of the epithets thrown around.

With no background, the Brazil link, the nytimes and nydailynews websites said *whatever they wanted.*
