Well, Imagine That...

Bush heckler gets canned
CHARLESTON, W.VA. - Freedom of speech clearly has its costs, a West Virginia man has found.
The 35-year-old - who heckled President Bush at a political rally - was fired from his job at an advertising and design company for offending a client who provided tickets to the event.
"I'm mad less about losing the job - I'm more mad about the reasons," Glen Hiller, of Berkeley Springs, said yesterday. "All I did was show up and voice my opinion."
Hiller was ushered out of a high school Tuesday after shouting his disagreement with Bush's comments about the war in Iraq and the search for weapons of mass destruction. The crowd had easily drowned out Hiller with its chant: "Four more years."
When he showed up for work at Octavo Designs of Frederick, Md., the following morning, Hiller - a father of two - said he was told he had embarrassed a client - and was fired. The company did not return calls yesterday.
