Roughly an hour later, the Moderator posted the following:Steve asked me to post this reply:
"That a right-wing-blog would impugn my patriotism because I said children should learn to read, and could get better jobs by doing so, is beneath contempt. Noel Sheppard says, “Nice sentiment when the nation is at war, Stephen.” I guess he feels ignorance and illiteracy are OK when the country needs cannon-fodder. I guess he also feels that the war in Iraq has nationwide approval. Well, it doesn’t have mine. It is a waste of national resources. . . and that includes the youth and blood of the 4,000 American troops who have lost their lives there and for the tens of thousands who have been wounded. I live in a national guard town, and I support our troops, but I don’t support either the war or educational policies that limit the options of young men and women to any one career—military or otherwise. If you agree, find Sheppard on the internet, and send him an email: “Hi, Noel—Stephen King says to shut up and I agree.”

Now, assuming Ms. Mod was indeed going on vacation, and the message boards are closed during such, wouldn't it have been more appropriate for King to wait until she came back BEFORE sending his dogs out to attack me?

Stephen King Update
Looks like King cannot take the heat. He has shut down his message board. Typical leftist hypocrisy here. Free speech is only for those that agree with their point of view. Here is a little snippet of what you will find over at NewsBusters,
You can read more comments at NewsBusters. Just a word to this moderator, Stephen King and the one Stephen King fan. I will not shut up and there is not one damned thing you can do about that. - Sailor
