Don't Throw out the Becky with the Bathwater

On police violence, city council abuses, housing, homeless civil rights, student rights, medical marijuana, D.A. coverups, phony local liberalism, and women's rights, Becky Johnson has done established a significant journalist record.

I believe Becky is misinformed and wrong on the Israeli-Palestinian issue. So do most others who post here. So what?

Suggesting Becky be ostracized, excluded, etc. seems a way of eliminating a good activist from the community. Bad idea.

The kind of debates that go on here are healthy and educational (although heated). But I think it's important to see things in perspective.

Becky is a dear friend of mine, but I think my opinion also reflects a realstic and fair assessment of her work and her worth as an activist.
