In Lawmaker’s Outburst, a Rare Breach of Protocol
By CARL HULSE
Published: September 10, 2009

Dear Editor,
If interrupting the speech with applause is not a breach of protocol, why is shouting a breach of protocol?  Is it because the shouter insulted the President that this has become news?  Would people be happy if he shouted, “I disagree!”I wish someone had shouted “You lie!” at least once when W lied to Congress.   Rather than asking hecklers to apologize, ask them for evidence.  Hold them accountable.  If you prohibit heckling, prohibit applause as well. Vice President and Speaker of the House should not lead standing ovations.I wasn’t in time to post my comment on NY Times site but I don’t think anyone else has asked this question.   Have New York Times readers become sheep?  (Or have I fallen asleep counting them and am only now waking up?)
