    This is all good to hear. I hope there will be a post that is similar about Ginger and Udall’s people?? Jo Bunny says a good interview was done in Albany and hopes someone finds it… Mar

    Thanks so much for all you are doing in the various protests. Quite professional and attracting much attention. I am still looking for groups in the Maryland/Pennsylvania. I will definitely go the Washington DC for the “big one” when the time arrives.

    i watched and cked all the local news here in los anegles area and never saw coverage – and friend was watching too and she never saw any coverage – did tv stations choose not to run it or is all the media afraid to run anything that speaks of opposition to the govt policies

    on another note friends have told me about bob eubanks speaking out on the mustangs in rose parade but stephanie edwards apparently uninformed said she thot it was great the blm was rounding up the horses to give them a better life – bs

    ABC channel 7 ran a very short piece at about 4:35pm on the 6th – I was caught offguard – didn’t expect it – Fox Channel 11 was there but I never saw the piece. i checked everyone’s websites -nothing

  5. rob Says:

    During the Rose Parade, Stephanie Edwards made a comment to the fact that the horses, which Bob Eubanks pointed out are adopted wild horses by the Marines, are starving. He corrected her and said that the Nevada issue was a very contested issue. She knew nothing about it.
