Anybody up for protesting Blackwell and his ethics luncheon?
Me and mod mom are thinking it might just be a great way to spend a couple of hours on a warm, rainy Wednesday afternoon.

It's at the Scioto Country Club, 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
2196 Riverside Drive (Rt. 33, south of Lane Ave., north of Trabue)
The entrance is fairly nondescript with no sidewalks and a chest-high stone fence surrounding the entire grounds. We could probably stand on the opposite side of the street (city property?) with signs.

The only problem I can foresee is the parking situation. Across the street there is an El Vaquero and a Bob Evans and really no place for public parking and I'm not sure if those folks would appreciate non-patrons in their lots during lunch hour. An option would be to maybe meet in one of the nearby side streets of Upper Arlington and shuttle people to the site. Not sure how Upper Arlington police will be. I'm sure they may have safety concerns considering it's an extremely busy street.

Anybody who's interested, PM me.

17. Why not be more subtle and...
Present him with a gift wrapped copy of "Uncle Tom's Cabin"? Perhaps right before he gives his talk. Inscribe the frontspiece with his oath of office. It could have a dramatic effect.

5. Here you go
Upper Arlington Area Chamber of Commerce
2120 Tremont Center
Upper Arlington, Ohio 43221-2848
Phone: 614-481-5710 Fax: 614-481-5711
Email: uainfo@uachamber.org

Not sure how good it will do you. From what I hear, Upper Arlington is quite the republican stronghold.

6. If I could, I'd join you. I'll help brainstorm signs and chants, though!
Jeepers, why did the revolution have to pick up steam in the dead of winter?

It's going to be in the minuses here this weekend and next. Really not conducive to street protests at all. (sigh)
