Hi Chip,

I'm falling down on the job! Thanks for the reminder/request for an update. 
Some 18-plus folks met and crossed Village Square and Killearn Center Blvd. 
Unfortunately, there was no law enforcement and no press. Shows what they 
really think. I got some really good pictures and NFB provided some really 
visible and cool signs. There were some young folks there observing and I think 
they got a real education, not to mention the drivers going through the 
intersection. I'm looking forward to Tuesday's events at City Hall as well and 
encourage everyone who can to join us. 

Perhaps someone from the other group crossing the intersection of Park and 
Capital Circle might want to report on their activities?
