Nicole Williams of the Tennessee Center for Policy Research tells the Scripps Howard News Service that she received about 10 death threats by phone, and more than 100 threats that said in one way or another — "I'm gonna get you."
The center received nearly 3,000 Gore-related emails — many too vulgar to repeat here. Of those that can be, one said: "I hope you all die slowly and have your hearts and brains trampled to pieces — you small-minded, ignorant, backwoods ideologues."
Another e-mailer said: "You bunch of stupid hick rednecks. I am sure you are quite religious, yet you have no problem destroying His creation with pollution; and, rather than addressing that, you cast dispersions on Al Gore's home energy use."
Yet another: "You are a total waste of skin and air. Help the environment and jump off a cliff."
