Ms. Phillipp-
It was interesting that you stated the bricks through the window of Slaughter's office and the DEMOCRATIC ( my bold) headquarters leaving the impression that they were done by opponents of the democrats and Slaughter since you did not note the people doing the brick throwing. If PBS and WXXI were fair and balanced, you would have quickly noted that in one case it was from a self-proclaimed anarchist and in the other, a disgruntled liberal. Again, the impression was left that it was the other side. Any wonder why people of logic call PBS one sided?
