Mayor Street You Made A Just Decision
July 31, 2006
As an Eagle Scout and a proud (and voting) citizen of the United States, I want to thank you for your extreme courage
in taking the action you did against the Boy Scouts. Discrimination isvile and evil and should be eliminated
in all it's forms--foremost insuch an 'all-American' organization as Scouting.(Is discrimination the bestAmerica
has to offer our young hearts and minds...?)
It is rare, indeed, these days of right-wing witch-hunts that a politician takes the understanding of the true
worth of our nation's hope and promise of equal rights and justice for ALL to the level you have...putting your
political future on the line for what is just and right. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
