I started picketing across the street from the Ft. Harrison Hotel at 10am. Almost immediately the blonde PI was watching me through a window. A security guy came out and started videotaping me. The blonde PI and the Italian PI came out and videotaped me too. So there were 3 people videotaping this lone picketer, PLUS the 2 permanent cameras no doubt.

About 10:30 2 more picketers arrived. About 10:45 another, and about 11 another. So 5 picketers in all. We picketed across from the Ft. Harrison Hotel until 1pm when we went over to the Coachman building at Ft. Harrison Ave. and Cleveland St. That went well. Strangely, as we were picketing, a bird hit a tree or the building just above us and slammed into the sidewalk right beside a pedestrian walking by. The bird had broken its neck on something, and died a few minutes after hitting the ground.

It was a good reasonably quiet day except for the number of video cameras pointed at us most of the day.

Lots of thumbs up and honks of support.

When a Scientology staffer used a syringe to force
a mixture of aspirin, Benadryl and orange juice
into McPherson's throat while others held her down,
it was "spiritual sustenance," the church argues.
