Ramona Africa

I went to see a talk by this woman, Ramona Africa, at a place called flowershop in San Francisco. Ramona is one of two people that survived the 1985 police firebombing of one of the MOVE organization's house in Phillidephia.

Its an incredible story. A powerful example of the officially sanctioned murder and destruction of members of a radical organization.

Don't remember talking about it in school though.

The story of MOVE is one of the most shocking things I have ever heard about as far as those things go. It outraged me when I looked into it. I don't remember hearing about it in school either! In fact it was very hard to come across any information on it at all! It is surprising and not surprising at the same time. It's really cool that you got to see her speak. I guess the bay area is good for things like that.

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',

Neil
