Ämne: re: From LA Times Reporter/Ann M. Simmons
Thank you for your response to my prior e-mail, regarding reaction
to the proposed Soviet memorial.
I have since received several responses from petitioners, many of
them outside of California.
Since we are a Los Angeles-based newspaper, we usually like to
localize stories that appear in our Metro/State section.
So, although I will definitely state in my story that there are
people protesting the memorial from all over the country--and the
world--my editor has suggested that I rely primarily on comments
from California residents.
I very much appreciate your cooperation in highlighting this issue.

I talked to Ann Simmons today. She said that she is receiving e-mail
and calls from around the world regarding the monument. She will be
writing an article about this issue but she is not sure if it will
run in the LA times on the day or before the day of the dedication.
She asked if I had any letters from Mr. Prang. I e-mail all that
were directed to me and I also sent a copy of the e-mail that I sent
to Mr. Prang
For your information Ann Simmons is the one who wrote the original
article regarding the monument.
Her e-mail address is
She will not be in her office on Monday. She replied to me April
30th at 9 PM California time.
