    I wish they’d allow polite booing at city meetings in my town. As it is we have city officials proposing that they put up a plexiglass wall between themselves and the public gallery, so they can sleep through meetings without being interrupted.

     Nobody can handle dissent.  And unfortunately, the ones who most need it are the worst at taking it.

    Once again more evidence that if you give people power they get what appears to be brain damage.

    I always include a hearty smile and a tip of my top hat when booing.

    I grew up near there, and if I remember correctly this ban wasn’t particularly useful. Not much booing but plenty of long strange poetry, chanting political slogans, and hucking paper signs.

    Polite booing? Isn’t that like politely calling your mother a whore?
