A week after these incidents began, I’m glad to see the NYT finally documenting organized right wing efforts to subvert public health care forums.

Beware, however, the instinct to soft peddle these efforts as evidenced by the caption above. Mr. Thompson, with his face screwed up and his finger jutting menacingly at this meeting with Rep. Dingell is not “speaking out.” What he’s doing is raging.
