And what did we learn today? We learned from Scott Key over on New West ABQ/Santa Fe, that "Gadflies like Geraldine Amato are anything but smooth, and I take their rough, chunky rants as a sign this country hasn't totally lost its principle of freedom of speech." Scott, that's timely since Channel 27 Albuquerque will host Freedom of Speech Day on September 29 from 9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. A special feature will be their freedom of speech competition with kids from schools throughout Albuquerque. We'll be tuning in for sure.
