American Bikers to the rescue!

CNN reports about a group of motorcyclists who travel the country cheering respectuflly at military funerals to block the anti-gay protests held by Fred Phelps and his band of pseudo-Christians.

The bikers shield the families of dead soldiers from the protesters, and overshadow the jeers with patriotic chants and a sea of red, white and blue flags.

"The most important thing we can do is let families know that the nation cares," said Don Woodrick, the group's Kentucky captain. "When a total stranger gets on a motorcycle in the middle of winter and drives 300 miles to hold a flag, that makes a powerful statement."

To Mr. Woodrick's group and the Patriot Guard, I say Thank You.
