Long but real great read. A good break from my writing of the Olney AAR. Lots of new stuff and plenty of links. Thanks so much for writing a memorable AAR. This is one of your best.
Several additions, we normally don't put up the MOAB with the wind being as strong as it was Friday, but the 3 Yr. Anniversary demanded it. Thanks to all who helped hold it from blowing away. Also, several times the burma shave signs were blown off the cars or blown around so one couldn't read them. And we had bricks and rocks weighing them down. But you are correct, the wind made the flags look great.
Two corrections, Veeram (not listed) and RLMorel are from Massachusetts and the corners Concretebob ‘stole’ from the Pinkos are permitted under Protest Warriors. Several FReepers have copies of both permits readily accessable when the police want to see them. We've had to produce them times when the Pinkos call the police because we are verbally engaging them in their obscure space.
Again, big thanks for writing the AAR.
