Nutjobs lose suit

The Westboro Baptist Church - the "God Hates Fags" folks - have lost a lawsuit for 11 million dollars.

One thing that struck me - the article says that have 75 members. I've heard of them. You heard of them. Everybody in the country has heard of them. And they have 75 members.

It shows that in this country an organization can get enormous publicity just by being completely disgusting - and it doesn't require any real following or influence at all.

There's something very wrong with that.
