Costume works against group’s ‘serious’ claims | Letter


I’m not going to address the rhetoric of the “anti-noise” group talking about the health and well-being of the citizens of Whidbey Island, or the laughable idea that the Navy not notifying the public of their touch-and-gos was, as Michael Monson said, “unconscionable.”

Instead, I’d rather offer a little bit of advice: If you are going to protest — and you want to be taken seriously — don’t go wearing a purple cape and Paul Revere hat standing next to an individual holding an American flag upside down.
