I read in the June 2 Sun Journal that Maine officials did not sign a brief against funeral protests. The brief was brought before the U.S. Supreme Court by the attorney general of Kansas. All other states except Virginia and Maine signed the brief in support of a father who sued anti-gay protesters from a church in Maryland who demonstrated at the 2006 funeral of his son, a Marine killed in Iraq.

Why is our state acting so heartless? Our men and women die overseas for us.

I would like to know which Maine politicians did not want to sign. The people of Maine have a right to know. Such action will not look good for them when they are up for re-election.
