Should the state condemn the Standish ‘Obama pool’?

A sign in a Standish convenience store promoted a pool to bet on when President-elect

Barack Obama would be assassinated. What is the appropriate reaction to such

sentiments? Public figures from the governor to legislators have condemned the sign,

which was mentioned in national news stories. Is a legislative resolution that Maine

doesn’t tolerate such actions enough? Should those who oppose Mr. Obama be able to air

their views no matter how offensive?
