Ed Martin's Call for aldermanic term limits is against St. Louis freedom!

In his new St. Louis Metro Sentinel Journal column, Ed Martin has called for term limits for members of the St. Louis Board of Aldermen. I liked Ed Martin's defenses of Archbishop Burke awhile back, and I believe in his defense of the freedom of St. Charles pharmacist Heather Williams not to dispense the immoral "morning after" pill and still work, but Martin's new idea is a bad one. St. Louisans should be free to keep their alderman as long as they like. I am in the 28th Ward and would like to Lyda Krewson to remain our alderman for many more years. Futhermore, St. Louis needs to keep pro-freedom aldermen such as Lewis Reed and Stephen Gregali in City Hall for many more years to come too.
