97. I once went to see one of their "rallies."
Edited on Wed Nov-15-06 10:05 AM by janx
This was in Colorado some time ago. They used to "rally" (yell and wave flags) outside of a restaurant that had a patio. The restaurant people HATED it; patrons sat down on the patio to have lunch and were subjected to five or six people yelling and waving flags. One guy brought a bullhorn periodically. I sat on the patio and ate lunch, just watching.

Crazy. Really crazy.
