Will we see a follow-up story on the Hilo High School “peace” speaker, James Albertini who caused such a stir in the last couple weeks forcing his way into Hilo High to speak to students supposedly on the subject of “participation in democracy”. I sayforced because after it was learned what he was about and his nefarious past, Mr. Dircks wisely uninvited him only re-invited him upon threat of a lawsuit.
My understanding is that not only the librarian but other faculty were not happy or willing to have their classes subjected to Albertini. Likewise, the parents when they learned what was afoot wisely “opted out” for their children and Albertini’s speaking engagements were a total flop. Since most of the public saw the run-up, read your story and others describing in detail why Albertini should be free to exercise his 1st Amendment rights, that now a follow-up is definitely called for to complete for people how it ended up.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I’ll be looking for your article on this matter.
