The recent death of George McGovern gave us an expectation of a decent interval of respite from the hate of abortion opponents.  Not so, as we seen from an Aberdeen man's letter to the editor.

George McGovern's life as a teacher, Senator, candidate for President, tireless humanitarian and beloved gentlemen admired by many from both parties merited and recieved glowing tributes at his funeral.

However, the haters don't take a break from hating.  Evidence: This letter to the editor in the Aberdeen American News

The writer, a prominant right-to-life advocate refers to the Senator as facillitating a "culture of death' partly because he was influenced by "radical feminists".

One would think McGovern's 35 combat missions as a bomber pilot in WW2, his unflagging work fighting world hunger, his vindicated opposition to the Vietnam fiasco, and his genial and genuine manner would merit as least a break from these people until his body was cold.

No, they have no limit. They enthusiastically demonstrate self-righteous hate because they spend their lives among people who agree with them.

Fight back.  Memorials are directed to "Feeding South Dakota"

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
