    ... they came to intrude upon a friend of a friend's funeral, soldier killed in Afghanistan.  The friend got very much involved in organizing a response.  Turnout of supporters was overwhelming and the WBC left within minutes because they were surrounded and so thoroughly diluted that they were rendered invisible.

    That's a densely populated part of the country, and it seems like people from the nearby towns would be glad to do something similar.

    I ain't big on the jingoism in this song, and I'm not much of a flag waver, but the friends of that young man's family put together a strong show of support, and I think the slides in this video show it pretty well.

    I'm going to look through the comments here to see if anyone in the area's stepping up to organize something similar.  It's important to have the correct discipline, so they don't have grounds for litigation - their ugly, heartless, exploitative main source of income.
