Free Speech For Highway Workers

Support Michael Gerstenlager

I wrote a couple of days ago about Michael Gerstenlager, the Ohio highway maintenance worker who displayed a sign with the word "traitor" on a snowplow while helping provide security for President Bush's motorcade. Gerstenlager, a steward with the Ohio Civil Service Employees, AFSCME Local 11 has been suspended and faces termination (if not a trip to Guantanamo).

He can use your support. You can send e-mails supporting Gerstenlager to OCSEA Director Bruce Wyngaard.

And although I would never advocate such a thing, wouldn't it be interesting if Gerstenlager's idea caught on everywhere Bush traveled?
