Congratulations to Edward Cleary, clearly defines the core issues at stake. A great appointment. I'm hoping he has a long, compassionate and decisive career.

I guess I have to disagree with his handling of the cross-burning. I have the right to play my stereo as loud as I want in my own home. However, MY rights end where YOURS begin. I do not have the right to play my stereo so large that you can hear it in your home next door with your windows closed. Free speech gives you the right to express your opinion. In my mind that is YOUR opinion only. It does NOT give you the right to take a symbol of hate onto another's property and burn it where it becomes a symbol of terror and fear along with grounds for trespass and damage to property along with being a total hate crime. I beg to differ with your legal skills that simply made you a better actor than the prosecution. Those who made the constitution surely never advocated burning a cross in someones yard an example of free speech. My opinion only but I firmly believe in it!
