I forgot to mention,

After I deployed the flagpole, I walked over to the Capitol. I visited Tim Donnelly, who is now a state legislator. For those who don't know, Tim was very active on the border with the minutemen. He had an admirable work ethic in the immigration law enforcement arena, and used to patrol the border at his expense all the time. I discussed a few ideas I had, and we agreed to stay in touch.

I know we do still have a few people left with jobs, but it is too bad you don't have even a little help.

Thanks. The display was so neat and orderly, it surprised me. Very professional, you can be proud of your work. :)

Today's event at the state capitol went ok,

I hit some thick traffic on the way in which put me about 20 minutes late, but when I got there and started setting up, a news crew approached me and asked if I was with SOS. They asked to film me setting up the flagpole and display, so of course I accomodated them. Towards the end, another guy with a camera showed up and took some shots for a weekly paper. After the flag was raised, I gave an interview with the first one. I'm not sure how much will end up in print, but I covered all the main points and answered all her questions. After they left, I parked the truck so as to avoid any further parking tickees, and walked back to the capitol.
The display attracted a lot of people. Some glanced, some read while they walked by, some stopped and read, and some did the double take after walking by and came back. There were zero detractors. several people thanked me for doing it.
A few legislators walked by, one being Mark Leno, who glanced, but apparently didn't want to stop. I did the prayer at 12:00 noon, but decided against the protest since the display seemed to be frequented more when I wasn't there. I think this type of memorial event begs for people who don't want confrontation or to be bothered in any way by anyone else. Best to just sit back and reap the rewards from afar.
At dusk, I rolled the flag down, and one CHP asked if they were going to watch it all night for us!
I then dismantled and loaded up the parts.

Ayatollah's Note:

When you come to the State Capitol, the lack of formal wear can be forgiven, but UNDERWEAR is a must:

And a woman at that, unless the guys in Sac wear heels. :eek:

Good job on the display.

She must feel a draft back there.

Well done AG!
Looks like a fine display. I was particularly impressed with your having touched bases with Donnelly.
