I wanted to let you know that you inspired my decision for my sociology project. The assignment was to break a norm and observe people's reactions. All throughout this entire week I will be standing at freeway exits with an anti war sign to observe people's reactions on my public display of opinion. I was wondering if I might use some of your quotations from the signs you have posted around here. I didn't want to use anything without your permission. Yours, H.
Dear H... hi, and thanks. Feel free to use anything you like of my signs, methods etc. but if you're going to stand with an anti-war sign, please please please have someone with you, preferably with a videocam, mace, or both. For the last five years, people have been hearing from their radios and TVs that people who don't support this war are the real enemy destroying this country. I'm not exactly sure why this is, but I think it has something to do with ratings. I can't be more emphatic about this: If you're going to stand with a sign where people can get to you, make sure you've got someone there for protection. Unless, of course, you're a ninja, in which case I'm sure you'll be fine. Yours, Scarlet
Dear Scarlet, thank you and don't worry. My Dad's going to be with me the whole time. Even though he's not a ninja, believe me - nobody, and I mean nobody, is gonna get past him. Will send pix. Yours, H. (in Sacramento)
