"A month after federal agents raided Gibson Guitar on suspicions the company illegally imported timber from Indian rainforests, the issues raised by the action continue to galvanize -- and polarize -- conservative activists, environmentalists and industry groups. ... Gibson supporters announced an Oct. 8 Nashville rally and concert in support of the guitar maker. Speakers are to include Juszkiewicz, radio show hosts Steve Gill and Phil Valentine, and Amy Kremer, chairman of the Tea Party Express." [editor's note: Gill? Valentine? Marsha Blackburn? Sort of a reunion of the income tax fight of a decade ago ... with all the up and down that goes with that - SAT] (09/21/11)
