I stepped outside about 1 p.m. today and noticed the entire Sea Org coming out of the bank building and lining up across the street. Literally hundreds of uniformed members filling more than half the block on the opposite side of the street. They reached almost all the way down to our door.
Having a moment free, I grabbed one of the Lisa Picket signs from our window (I placed them all in the windows after the state dropped it's case) and walked over to the group.
Instantly they all averted their eyes and looked away so I walked through the group and stood at the edge of the white lines. In moments, OSA was out there to assess the situation. This included a personal appearance from Ben Shaw himself. I waved and shouted "Hi Ben" but he didn't respond.
Suddenly the troops were all called back inside.
This all happened in a little more than a minute.
After the crowd was herded inside I asked the OSA guy who was standing between me and the cop "Everybody had to go back in because of one sign?"
He didn't respond.
Good thing I wasn't bedridden today, eh, Mr. Magoo?
