The long-standing conflict between internal security and individual freedom will be the topic of a community luncheon forum today at the Richland Red Lion.
Pat Gallagher, a Seattle sculptor and a board member of ACLU of Washington, will trade views with Trent England, director of constitutional studies at Evergreen Freedom Foundation in Olympia, on whether Americans are confusing dissent with disloyalty.
The 11:30 a.m. event, open to the public, is sponsored by the Columbia Basin Badger Club. To make $20 reservations call 736-1979 or email the club at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Digger, a small badger awarded after each forum for the best question asked, was presented to Bob Hindes at the club's annual meeting. Also, Sharon Brown, Ed Frost and Mike Atchison were elected to the Badger board.
