Forgive my ignorance, but what is "The Gazebo" and how would one access the recent discussion of Sam Gwynn's supposed political views?
Sounds like Nigel Hold is writing fiction, from the discussion here. Tim Murphey once described Sam Gwynn to me as the last Southern Democrat, so how he's come to be a Repubican baffles me. Besides, last time I checked, Republicans were American citizens, too, with a right to self expression. Though an Independent myself, I think members of both major parties deserve a fair hearing.
