Milblogs all over the country are going silent until December 18, 2009.

The Huntsville City Council and the Huntsville City Schools Board of Education both meet Thursday night (Dec 17). Each of these bodies has the power and duty to help make this right. The City needs to ensure that Police do not chill Freedom of Speech.
