So Much Hate Out There It's Scary Dept: A Chinese-American lawmaker in California is calling for a boycott
of companies who advertise on Rush Limbaugh's radio hate fest after
Limbaugh harshly refused to apologize for his gibberish imitation of
Chinese President Hu Jintao. In response to his call for civility, State
Sen. Leland Yee, who is running for mayor of San Francisco, received a racist, raging, expletive-filled death threat. Warning: Even in these volatile and divisive times, its language, stupidity and depth of rage kinda take our breath away. Even worse: readers' comments in the news stories. We can only hope this guy isn't packing. Police are investigating.

A free and independent press is essential to the health of a functioning democracy
