Kudos to Harriett M. Wieder, Kathryn Thompson, Roger Johnson, et al. for having the courage and integrity to stand up at this crucial moment and depart from a Republican Party that has clearly gone haywire! The Republican convention was an eerie display of dangerous divisiveness and inappropriate intrusion into domains which are private and personal. As for me, I'll fight tooth and nail before I let the likes of Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell and the rest of the religious right run my life.

Roger Johnson. Until now, a cellular phone user reporting a crime had to call 911, which connected the caller to the California Highway Patrol.
