|Above are two e-mails received
within an hour of each other on September 17, 2004. The first,
from the RNC, has an Associated Press photo
of 3-year-old Sophia Parlock crying on top of the shoulders of her
Parlock after the Bush-Cheney sign she was holding was ripped up.
This occurred at a Sept. 16 rally John Edwards held at Tri-State Airport

history of bringing Republican signs into Democratic rallies. The
second, from the DNC, is an account of a woman whose son was killed in
Iraq and who was detained after trying to ask why that had happened
during a rally
