    Dear Sir,

    I have frequently shopped at Home Depot and Expo, and bought gift cards for family and friends. As a loyal customer, I'd like to express my concern, and see by
    your response if I can remain a customer.

    I'm disturbed that you advertise on a show and network that supports supression of free speech, among other disturbing positions. Fox network's Bill O'Reilly has campaigned against scientific information about Global Warming, DailyKos, and
    any one who questions O'Reilly's veracity or position. He has been known to threaten callers who disagree with him with "Fox security" and even gone so far to have security personnel call their homes. He persecuted these callers for the grave crime of calling his show and politely disagreeing with him.

    It is unfortunately clear that Bill O'Reilly would like the only voice in any debate to be his own, and those who agree with him - not the values of the America I know and love. By supporting him and his network with your advertising dollars, you are, by his own standards, endorsing his position. This is the man who said  of the kidnapped and molested child Shawn Hornbeck, "there was an element here that this kid liked about this circumstances." O'Reilly also said: "The situation here for this kid looks to me to be a lot more fun than what he had under his old parents."

    I find his hate speech repulsive, and I am sad to hear that you support him. I hope that Home Depot will reconsider its position, and that I will once again be able to proudly shop in a store whose positions reflect good American values, and sound
    environmental science.
