I've been going back and forth on whether to post this because it's a bizarre combination of honorable and sad. We all respect and appreciate Chuck Smith, and a lot of what he says here is exactly what the expensive PR firms would have told him to say. But there's a whole lot of almost-contained and barely-restrained hostility here, too, and the "press conference" on the street in front of the buses is just . . . ugh. So I, apparently like Chuck himself, have mixed feelings, but folks are talking, so there's no sense in ignoring it.
