Memorial services will be held this weekend at various locations for those lost in last week's crash of Continental Flight 3407.
With media attention comes the unfortunate phenomenon of those who would call attention away from the matter at hand, to their own agenda - no matter how lowly.
Rumors circulated yesterday that notorious hater, Fred Phelps, will be in town to picket, and the counter to this is a local effort is to dress people as angels and send them to the memorial sight as a "human" shield. People are being asked via an email campaign and a Facebook
page to either dress as an angel, or supply the $12 needed for angel costumes
Angels could look like anyone in a crowd. Angels might quietly and somberly mourn the dead as if they were their own family members. Haters will be seen for what they are - an unfortunate scourge on the face of humanity.
Considering that authorities say they are aware of the arrival of Phelps and are ready to deal with it, are the angels a good idea?
