Gold Star Mother speaks to Berkeley City Council

Everybody remembers the Berkely City Council's actions against the U.S. Marine Corps, right? Telling the Marines they weren't welcome in Berkeley, encouraging anti-war activists to "impede, passively or actively, by nonviolent means, the work of any military recruiting office located in the City of Berkeley."

I got this in my inbox: a Gold Star Mother telling the council that they're a bunch of jerks.

The council did back away from its previous stance afterwards.
