If you've been enjoying the coverage of the "Human Rights Tribunal" here in Vancouver, come and sit with us this evening at Vancouver Public Library outside Blenz coffee bar in the atrium and let's talk about it. We'll be there at 7:00 p.m. and we'll stay till they insist it really is closing time and they have to bring the chairs inside for the night. Happens every time. We claim we sit till 9:00 but we're there till they chase us out long past the hour. Who'd think that meeting friends once a week like we've been doing for two and a half years now could be so much fun? We talk a lot. And sometimes we organize protests in support of free speech. We never know exactly what we'll be on about, not being collectively ideologically committed to much beyond democracy and the right to participate in acts of lawful personal freedom. We talk a lot about books and ideas. We'd love to talk with you. Come and join in.
If we haven't met already, now's the chance. If you don't know who we are, we often wear blue scarves to identify ourselves, and I am known to wear an Israeli flag on my baseball cap. We're easy to find, and as easy to talk to. Looking forward to you coming to join in for the evening.
Free Mark Steyn. Coffee, though, is a couple of bucks. Hope to see you tonight. That's free too.
The photo has nothing to do with free speech or jihadis. I put it up once in a while just because it's beautiful. Click to enlarge. It's actually three photos the artist puts together as one. Somewhere in southern England. Life isn't all doom and gloom. Sometimes it's lovely.
