Thanks so much for the great commentary, “To Ask, Coerce, Then Strong-Arm” in the September 1 issue.  It was wonderfully-written and educational about the vaccines and the vaccine passport challenges Americans are now facing. 

Bringing awareness to the SB 267 that Gov. Kay Ivey signed into Alabama law in May was very much needed. People need to know the truth about the vaccine passports and to understand that Shoals Fest is requiring the passport or proof of vaccination to enter the concert on our publicly-owned property at McFarland. 

The city should rethink letting them hold this concert with the passport proof of vaccination requirements.

Thanks for all you do for our community and our state, Tom!
