Jim Randall: Karl Rove protest

I was disheartened to see an announcement of a group planning to meet at 12:30 p.m. Saturday on the courthouse lawn to protest the “Karl Rove” Freedom Conference. It advised to “bring cookies and a positive attitude,” which I perceive is anything but positive. We are an eclectic community where I have found people to appreciate and respect the views of others. I am disappointed when any one of our citizens would do anything but welcome a visitor to Steamboat, regardless of political persuasion, which never was an issue in our outstanding Seminars at Steamboat series this summer. The mere announcement of Saturday’s event was a display of rudeness toward a visitor that is beneath the dignity of Steamboat.
