Jason Jarrad's Feb. 13 letter, "Putting protest in perspective," made several points to be considered: Augusta National is in America. Don't think small. Don't be a redneck trying to deny protesters their rights.
He forgot to mention that Augusta National has not broken any laws, and (its membership policy) operates well within the Constitution. The ones attempting to deny others their right to assemble and associate are Jason Jarrad, Martha Burk, Jesse Jackson and a late arrival, Charles Walker Jr.
I would love to see the response if the Augusta National brought charges against them under the Racketeering and Corrupt Influences Organization (RICO) law for conspiring to deny their membership rights.
