odd that in most cases the message boards aren't opened on a death for the reason that free speech isn't vitally important. Gotta love MSN for showing class and letting the racist have their day at others grief. But if I were to wish horrible things on the family of Perry Walters I would be shut down. Then so be it. I have no side in this other than I read a story to find out who he was because I did recognize his name. THen I scroll to find the classless americans that I defended while in the service. Just wonderful.
