I really puzzles me. If we go down and make a loud protest, people
and the press complains. If we do something low key, they still compain
that we didn't bring down the house.
Not that this has any bairing on our actions. We do what we think is
appropriate to accomplish our mission. Our mission this time was to inform
and to preasure, and we did both very successfully.
