Activist writer wants president to read her work, Secret Service says no

The Associated Press reports:
A writer for a small Georgia newspaper who wanted to give President Barack Obama a letter was forcibly removed from a press area near Air Force One on Thursday shortly before he arrived at the airport.
Brenda Lee, who also identifies herself as a "Roman Catholic priestess" living in Anaheim, writes opinion pieces for the Georgia Informer, an African-American newspaper in Macon, Georgia. She said the letter urged Obama to take a stand against gay marriage.
