      Others have tried to do this before and failed.  Come and be a wittness.

      Perhaps, Rep. George Miller showed them the way to peace and Democracy, then again...

      Not for the squimish,

      Think Selma -1964, wear "safe" clothing.  Bring cell phones.

      Tell others you are coming, and when you expect to return.

      Come and let us all togehter learn who we really are.      --- BayPointMike
