Experiences draw group leaders into library Internet filter fight
The issue of requiring Internet filters at Herrick District Library has polarized the community.
And it\'s brought into the public eye several local people who have never been in the political spotlight before.
Those on the pro-filter side share a common passion -- the fight against pornography.
All say their passion on the issue stems from personal pain.
Filter vote will prolong debate \"I\'m just trying to make this a safe place to live,\" said Irv Bos, vice president of the local chapter of the Mississippi-based American Family Association.
\"I\'m so frustrated the community is bitter about this. I just don\'t understand the hearts and minds of those who criticize us,\" Bos said.
