I had the pleasure of meeting ex-DC-Scientologist Chip Gallo face to face for the first time. We picketed from aproximately 1:30 to 2:30 then spent 30 minutes socializing.

Scientology's keeps track of it's performance by keeping statistics on everything. The Reporting week ends at 2 PM on Thursday. So a picket that spans from 1:30 { one reporting week ] thru 2PM [ end of week ] and then continues into the next reporting week.... - any time past 2 PM... would allow one picket to count as a picket affecting two different weeks.

Also it was a lovely day...

In this brief 1 hour picket I recall at least 3 car horns honking at my sign that said:

Entering GREEDY
< Scientology <

I brought the
"Scientology should NOT
have CHARITABLE status"
sign out for Chip Gallo.

They were not pleased to see yet another ex-DC Scientologist with a picket sign

I handed out Rod Kellers custom picket entheta flyers..

A few people remarked how surprised they were that such an abomination as Scientology should have charitable status...

While I called out "It's worse than you think" to entice the aprantly already informed public into taking a flyer

Two people thanked me for being there....one said it sure takes guts to picket "them" as he thumbed a finger in Scientology's direction with disdain

A little old lady walked up to me and asked for a picket sign.. So I handed her mine and she carried it up and back in front of the entrance for a while.

I wondered for an instant if she will turn out to be a member of the "Anarchist Workers party..." Though I think she was more likely a potential associate of the "theres more to Ida Camburn than Meets the eye" Social club, picketing assembly and knitting circle

That made 3 people picketing.

Sylvia Stanard DSA DC, lumbered out and fiddled with a digital camera festooned with scotch tape, that apparantly had been dropped a few times. I asked Sylvia if she was going to be HERE for the "fireworks" on my birthday party.

She said Here? pointing down at ground...

I said yeah, here, between 3AM and 6 AM there will be fireworks up there { pointing up ).

She said, up there? pointing up...

I said yeah.

She asked me "is that a Threat?"

I said, "it is a promise**

Chip expressed concern that i might be "hensoned" riverside style... I just said the opportunity was too good to pass up..... I mean, wouldn't it be great if sylvia send's this up in her daily report to OSA INT..... The telexes start flying..... my only question is how long to wait before I hit the post button to post this message.

to wit:

**N.B, saturday at 3AM to 6AM is the expected biggist lifetime or two display of the Leonids Meteor shower - with the earth passing through 3 different major debris streams that each created spectacular fireworks displays...in the 18th and 17th centuries. 800 meteorites per hour are expected.... This spectacular event happened to fall on the date of November 18 - which is both my birthday as well as the anniversary date of the death of Congressman Leo J Ryan, when he was gunned down while visiting the Peoples temple Jim Jones cult in Guyana.

I'd prefer to die speaking my mind than live fearing to speak.

The only thing that always works in scientology are its lawyers

The internet is the liberty tree of the new millennium

Secrets are the mortar binding lies as bricks together into prisons for the mind
