Lately, in my role as an investigative columnist for the Santa Barbara News-Press, I'm discovering there are a lot of scared people out there, either afraid to speak their minds or opting for anonymity for fear of retribution.

That is not what we are as a free people, as a country.

Freedom of expression should be utilized and treasured.
