True, but the last time I was there, they did threaten to illegally picket my home (not legal in San Jose), then went ahead and did it. And the "burning" comment was made by Ed ONLY when we were far away from Keith. The net result of that comment was to ~insure~ that the cops listened intently and wrote reports. Without that comment, things might not have been taken anywhere near as seriously. The funniest part of their picketing my home last time was the new "button" they got out of it. The poor scared kid they sent out gave my son one of their "religious bigot" flyers. He and I get a kick out of that one, as he knows full well what lengths I go to to protect anyone's rights and the way I feel about religious freedom (and our other rights such as freedom of speech). My son made a comment something like "Sure, my dad's a religious bigot". Sarcasm as we know goes ~way~ over the heads of certain nut-cultists, so now I get grilled about "my relationship with my son" who "thinks I'm a religious bigot" all the time. It gets really funny listening to poor Ed, all "concerned" about how my son feels about me. - Brent From the CWPD Investigation files: Statement of Annie Mora: "Even for us it's a weird thing." pg 109
