VICTORY FOR H2O MAN - Mission accomplished, hunger strike at an end

His goals were very simple: a meeting with Senator Libous on the issue of fracking. He kept getting dodged and ducked, until this stike was the only way to get the meeting.

He got it.

===

Hi, Will:


It was a wild day. To make a long story short, I gave a speech in the Capital -- it went pretty well -- and a couple hours later, met with Senator Libous, then with his staff. And, man, does food taste good!

More tomorrow. I have some medical appointments in the morning and afternoon, then am planning to stay home and write up some of what went on.

Again, thank you for your support & article. I'll send a few links from some of the news sites that were there.

Pat

3. Yep.

He was surprised at all the attention (national) he got. He shouldn't have been.

20. It's that hard to get a meeting with a State Senator?

 

U.S. Democracy is truly broken.

Courage wins, and we win. And Pat wins, once he is not so dizzy any more ...
I'll keep the fist avatar a while longer, just to remember to think of H2OMan and how proud I am of him.
