We Are Always Open To Considerate And Transparent Dialogue. Not That We’ll Engage In It…

Dialogue anyone?

July 17, 2007

Love In Action received no formal notice of Mr. Toscano’s arrival, not did he invite us to participate in today’s proceedings, though it is apparent he did take the time to invite media sources…

Blah, blah, woof woof…  And you took the time to prepare a statement for the press and have a bunch of them printed up with with your logo and web site address and attach a tasteful little business card with your Communications Coordinator‘s name on it to every one.  So you knew it was happening, and in fact, Peterson has been talking to you John Smid.

But then…you knew that.  The wall is yellow John. 

More on the Survivor’s Initiative at Love In Action last Tuesday, and Peterson’s response to the LIA press statement Here.   In the meantime, I have some photos…

David Christie (right) and Brandon Tidwell display the collages of their
life journeys they would later present to the Love In Action staff.
At their request I’ve blurred out the details in the artwork.



 Some of the local folks who came out to support the survivors…


Brandon and David return from delivering their collages
to the LIA staff.  The only point at which anyone from LIA
came out to talk to anyone was to deliver copies of their
press statement.  I’ve no idea what was said at the door to
LIA, but the meeting was short.


 Brandon gets some artwork to take back home with him.
One of the protesters gave Brandon her poster and I’m
a tad jealous because that was a real good one.  I’d watched
them making it and a bunch of other good ones just before
the first anniversary protest last year.


LIA’s Press Statement

Someone had put them there, to keep them from blowing
away I guess, and I thought it made a good shot.  I think
that’s one of Morgan’s tripods.
