Activist leading fight to install Internet filters


A Story on the man leading the fight for filtering in Michigan appeared on Michigin Live

Gary Glenn has never left people lukewarm.

Through 20-plus years of political activism -- fighting organized labor, battling gay rights, looking to expand educational choice and now championing Internet filters in Holland -- the soft-spoken Southerner has inspired two reactions: devotion and derision.

If the past is any hint, the emotional fight for Internet filters at the Herrick District Library is vintage Glenn: Uncompromising, smart and confounding even to some of his friends. It\'s the kind of issue Glenn has tackled before and a harbinger of things to come in Michigan, where he promises his next pitched battle will be over gay rights ordinances in cities such as Grand Rapids.
