    A really good reason to dress in stupid clothes and paint body in weird colors. Now that’s what I would call an honorable citizen. I suggest if you want rights of others that you start acting like other good citizens.

      What does manner of dress have to do with a citizen’s rights?

  2. James Scorzelli says:

    A good citizen is one that treats everyone with the respect every living breathing person deserves, regardless of skin color, citizenship, race, creed, sex, gender identification and sexual orientation, AND clothing choices. I suggest YOU follow that guideline, because as Mayor of Springfield Christine Lundberg stated; this is a human rights issue, not up for debate by anyone, anymore. Our towns future IS bright, starting with educating people like yourself. Progress only moves forward, if you want to stand still, get out of the way or you might get knocked down.
