Questioned at a Nov. 20 meeting in Oak Park about hunting with his son to get a deer, NRA lobbyist Todd Vandermyde responded in matter-of-fact manner, “Oh yeah, Bambi makes good sausage!”
This was a different kind of Oak Park meeting. An Oak Park woman, perhaps reporting for the League of Woman Voters, worried aloud about being booed but wasn’t. She asked a question “from the other side,” explaining that the law is not what she wanted, “but it’s the law.”
“It’s also a right,” said a man sitting near her — quietly, without booing.
