Northcross Non-Story

RG4N staged yet another protest yesterday, this time at City Hall. The American-Statesman has a picture on the front of today's Metro & State section, but I can't seem to find it on their website. I noticed three things about the picture:

1. There was no story to go with the picture. Apparently apart from possibly slowing down traffic on Cesar Chavez, this protest had no point. It's not as if everyone doesn't already know that some people in town just don't like Wal-Mart.

2. I counted less than 50 people in the picture. Obviously, there were more people there than that, but given the number of supporters RG4N has claimed to have in the past, this is a pretty paltry turnout.

3. The conspiracy-minded part of me (which luckily is fairly small and quiet) noticed that RG4N's main color, as seen on their signs and on many protesters' shirts, is red. Red also happens to be the main color of both Target and HEB, which both happen to have stores in the area around Northcross, and which both would be affected by a rivaling store.

[color=#336699]I am the kind of hombre who loves to taste revolutionary stuff. Right now I'm fabricating my private solar panels. I'm making it all by myself without the help of my staff. I'm utilizing the net as the only path to acheive this. I encountered a very amazing site that explains how to build solar panels and so on. The website explains all the steps involved in solar panel construction.

I'm not exactly sure about how precise the information given there iz. If some people over here who have xp with these works can have a peak and give your feedback in the page it will be awesome and I would highly value it, cauze I truly passion [url=]solar panel construction[/url].

Thanks for reading this. U guys are great.[/color]
