The little old lady is named Phyllis Burgess. She's pressing charges, as well she should. I love her:
"Despite the attack, Burgess plans to attend future gay marriage rallies. 'To get my remarks across at my city hall where I have lived for 30 years .... if it takes endangerment, should that stop me?' says Burgess with a smile."
And VirtueOnline comments on our mainstream totalitarian media:
"The worst example we've seen of TV reporting on Prop. 8 protests came from the local CBS station in Palm Springs, Calif. On the grounds of City Hall, furious "gay" protesters knocked a Christian cross out of an elderly woman's hands and stomped on it. The woman remained calm and collected. When reporter Kimberly Chang tried to interview her, protesters screamed and blocked the camera with their signs. Hilariously, the station identified the victimized woman as "Phyllis Burgess, Involved in Prop 8 Rally Altercation." That's like saying Poland was involved in a border altercation with Nazi Germany. In a masterpiece of moral equivalence, CBS anchor Kris Long told viewers, "There's a lot of anger and a lot of hate, quite honestly, on both sides."
