The Barbershop has re-located

The proprietor has moved the shop to ChicagoNow, a Chicago Tribune site that showcases some of the best bloggers in the Chicago area. You can logo on to the Barbershop home page here. The ChicagoNow home page is here.

You'll still be able to post comments with the same ease as in this location. The proprietor also will keep this web site alive if you wish to review old posts.

Remember when Martin Luther King tried to march through white Chicago neighborhoods?

The argument back in the 1960s that he shouldn't march in support of open housing because he was "stirring up trouble," "inciting riots" and "endangering public safety." He marched anyway, as he should have, and for his efforts was hit in the head thrown by a racist in the crowd.

So, now we have another case of the right of free expression being restricted as a man is arrested for wearing a McCain shirt at an Obama victory rally. Where's the ACLU when you need it?
