They have a Yahoo group that I will forward the address to you via PM. I'm about to leave the house as I read this, so I'll do it when I come back. I'll try and find out for sure if this is happening or not.

Here is the specific page where they posted the plans. I guess it's sort of an itenerary/press release:

Here is the website for North Texas for Peace and Justice:

Here's another article about it you might  have read already.

This is not entirely movie related, but I found it interesting that the Reuters writer keyed into the fact that the movie was not showing within 30 miles of Crawford.  Crawford is as big as a postage stamp and they probably have to go all the way to Temple or Waco to get any decent groceries or to go to Wal Mart.  

I suspect the small town will be overwhelmed.  Rob, take all the food you think you will need with you.  Take a ton of OFF with DEET.  The last major stop is Waco.  In fact I think the last decent hotel is in Waco too.  I'd bet the media types are going to take all the good ones and I don't know if I would want to sleep on the ground Woodstock style out there.

Another thing I read was that the President was going to spend the time of the Democratic National Convention at Crawford, so who knows, he might accept the invite and bring a lawnchair and a cooler full of Pabst and join y'all.  Oh yeah, I think Waco's dry.  So if you want any of the good stuff, take it with you.


And politics aside, any movie theater owner who is short sighted enough not to show a "controverisal" movie or whatever their excuse is, is in my opinion crazy.  Look at what this thing has banked so far.  (And everybody knew it would whether they admit it or not)  Both sides of the political fence flock to see it, some mulitiple times.  It is a guaranteed profit center.  That being said I have to admit to having not gone to see it yet.  I was hoping Rob might video tape it for me when he goes to Crawford...

Thanks for the tips.  If Moore is going to be there and if we go, we'll probably just drive home afterwards.

Something's telling me he won't - unless he gets drunk enough to think it's a good idea to head on' down. :)

If you still haven't seen it by the time the DVD comes out, you can always borrow my copy.

Waco's not dry. Crawford might be, but Waco isn't.

Finally got some info on this:

http://www.kwtx.com/home/headlines/892936.html

It's happening tomorrow night 'around' 8:30 in Crawford.

I'm going to be a very last minute decision as to whether or not I can go.

Oh, and F911 passed the $100,000,000.00 for ticket sales this weekend - impressive.
