19-3| Steel Band Competition . Brooklyn Museum [ 06,9:40| ( See also )
Tho I met Carlos Lezama , patriarch of the West Indian Carnival , and
learned the basic fact that we could participate in the parade by simply
doing it , my hemispheres have been kicking each other for failing to take
advantage of the opportunity to get to know Major Owens , the Dem HoR member
from out there . I just couldn`t believe this squat guy in short red shorts
was actually a Congressman . Seeing his mug on his thoughtfully provided
cubic yard cardboard trash boxes at the parade , I realized it had to have
been him . I`m afraid I allowed my uncertainty to combine with my fuzz about
how to converse with someone who is either the most arithmetically
challenged MoC or , worse , doesn`t even care , to cause me not to introduce
myself . But I know such discussions can be useful , even if they just make
these people uneasy with their defense of illogic and dishonesty , and worry
them that they have made an army of us very mad .

Comments about Parade planning
John Clifton & I quickly distributed the few dozen brochures we
had with us , walking just one subway stop - about a sixth of the total
parade route - in the morning which tended to be the politicians time -
before the really massive crowds arrived . It is very clear that an
organized half dozen of us with parade materials could multiply John`s
visiblity many fold . I have uploaded one half-way decent hi-res image of
John I got . We need some better images .

|15:25| Walked over to Jesse Ventura Book Signing @ Borders @
WTC , but line to buy any book ( not line to get his signed ) was too
long to deal with . But , my friend , the great photographer Y. Nagasaki was
there taking his picture . He mentioned the showing of the NYC Public Art
Cow which has been censored off the streets ( see below ) . Nagasaki was
waiting to collect JV`s sig for his collection of 1000 celeb signed $1 bills
. I hung with him and ended up having a chance to hand JV my Scooter article
and two other pieces : Campaign letter and John Clifton Flyer .
Gary Snyder was also there and found JV considered us Libertarians all
anarchists on the basis of his being dissed by the MN group for his
public transportation plans . Jesse said the Libertarians should join HIM
rather than vise-versa . Arrogant Ignorance .
Nagasaki-san got JV`s sig on a $1 sized white paper rather than a bill ,
same as Giuliani did .

Primary Elections ( Dems have only contested races )
12| Roger Parker , Delta Petroleum @ DaTomasso 903 8th > 53 .
RSVP Richard Gersh .
This meeting was particularly interesting because a major variable in the
valuation of Delta is whether off-shore Califonia Federal leases will be
allowed to be developed . There is close to a 3B$ swing from resource
utilization to Taken $$ to essentially purchase back all the oil
on the notion of NEVER using it , and , by implication , buying foreign oil
to replace it .
It all depends on whether Bush or Gore is elected .
I asked Roger whether Californians might come to understand reality .
He has his doubts .
