Re: Solidarity for RNC arrestees and Action Alert


Hey Lee,

Collecting donations but also holding a RANT-A-THON (or Rant Til You
Cant) You paid $1 a minute (min. 3 minutes) to rant and if the audience
asks for it, you get an additional minute for wrap up. Pretty
cathartic, if you ask me.

Tonight? Drink liberally.

Re: Solidarity for RNC arrestees and Action Alert


The TANK's Bloggers Alley is helping raise funds as well. They are at
432 W 42nd Street. Some of the people have bail set at 1/4 million
dollars. Any monetary contribution will help.

Re: Hundreds Are Arrested as Protests Escalate


FYI, I have reports the police were arresting people as they were
coming out of the subway stations around 42nd street. Not even a
confrontation, just right out arrests with no charges, which is
consistent with the air of desperation that is clouding the NYPSD. Too
many bored kids with guns and nowhere to go on a hot summer day.
