I am appreciating anew the value of a very thick skin in a democracy. A national furor erupted last month over Chick-Fil-A's public stance against same-sex marriage and Boston Mayor Tom Menino's letter and speech in response "unwelcoming" a Chick-Fil-A franchise to his city. This extra-crispy brouhaha is merely the latest reminder of a truth as old as our country itself: The price of free speech is that we must put up with opinions that we find repugnant.
