Is Walesa the Blockhead?


Recently on The Blurb, we have been talking about Lech Walesa, the former president of Poland who called the current president a "blockhead."  He called the president a blockhead during a meeting.  As a result, Walesa has been charged with a crime and is facing a sentence of three years in prison.  This is because Poland has a law that says anyone who insults the president or calls him names will be sent to prison.

So our critical question is should Walesa be sent to prison for calling someone a "blockhead," or should he continue to insult the current president?

Here’s what we think:

    Lech Walsa is such an important person in Poland and has done much more for then than the current president. Plus “a blockhead”? What kind of insult is that? It is outragous chargeing this man with anything.
