I know journalists like to give both sides of an argument a voice, but come on. When SA had its "Line in the sand" event it was estimated between 500-2,000 people showed up. Moms Who Need Action had a counter-protest the same day; less than 20 people showed up!

This is like giving homeless crazy people print space on the issue of what should be done with homeless crazy people. They are statistically insignificant, insane, and if we allow them equal say in the issue despite their numbers we're going to get screwed.

For those who don't know, the woman who founded MDA is not the stay-at-home mom she claims to be, and she didn't just suddenly jump into the media circus. She's a professional manipulator of all things media, and runs her own PR firm. The odds are pretty good she's not even all that ideologically driven in this; her "group" (actually, PR firm) is getting fat checks from people like (not saying specifically, but could well be) Bloomberg and Joyce Foundation. I'm betting on the "M" and not the "I", though "E" probably figures in (MICE).

So if you're wondering how her group gets so much attention from the media, it's because that's her profession.

Remind me again what MICE stands for, please. I know M and C are money and conscience respectively, but I and E escape me...


On-topic, not a bad read, though I agree wholeheartedly that giving both sides equal say despite numbers is a very, very bad idea.

Money, Ideology, Coercion (or Compromise) and Ego. At least, that's how I heard it.
