FLARE's Mission

October 21, 1990

Re Chuck Philips' Oct. 7 article "The Battle of Memphis," which reports that FLARE handed out 2 Live Crew's lyrics at shopping malls and school yards:

I guess dealing in these lyrics is illegal only when it's the other guys doing it. FLARE does it in the name of God.

Marilyn Loeffel and her assemblage would have us locked away in ivory towers while they patrol the land, keeping us safe from anything they deem improper. Gee, sweet of you to offer, Marilyn, but no thanks. I couldn't possibly turn such a sacred charge over to a group with a stupid acronym. FLARE--Family Life America Responsible Education Under God Inc.--has got to be the lamest acronym ever. And shouldn't it be FLAREUGI?
