It's difficult to understand what is happening in Mount Vernon, especially since (surprise!) the complexities and emotions of the case are mainly left unreported and unexplored. Since I have been unable to attend any of the Mount Vernon events (rallies, school board meetings) I've been surfing the web for something to put up here that might show us (me included) an idea of the depth of emotion the Freshwater case has engendered up there. I think the video below, shot at the April 16 rally on the public square in Mount Vernon, below does it--especially the final 90 seconds.
