Perhaps it's expecting too much, but I think we should be shooting
for a system where we activists each keep a few brochures on hand and
gradually distribute them during the course of their day-to-day lives
-- give them to friends, relatives and colleagues, leave a few at the
laundramat, in the library, in your local coffeeshop, on the bulletin
board where you buy your groceries, at parties, to strangers waiting
for the bus (if you're bold), etc. If each of us were dispensing even
5 or 10 brochures a week, 500 wouldn't go that far. I'm sure I
average at least that many handed out.

Love & liberty,
        <<< starchild >>>

The way I came up with the numbers is that I counted
what we had of each brochure and subtracted that from
50 to get the number we needed to order. I seem to
remember Marcy saying that when she took care of this,
she had 50 of each brochure for Gay Pride.

I'm not so sure that it's worth ordering 500 of your
favorite brochures. ISIL does update its brochures
from time to time and it would be too bad to be stuck
with a lot of older brochures. 500 brochures is a lot.

I do agree that for Gay Pride we should have a larger
quantity of Mike's brochure, say 250.

Phil, could you get a vote of the Executive Committee
on what you want to do and let me know so I can order.


Phil & Francoise,

  IIRC, the item came up, but we never voted on it.
I'm in favor. I am
curious though, Francoise, how you came up with the
varying amounts
of the different pamphlets -- the list seemed to
have a lot of odd
numbers, like 29 of one pamphlet, 34 of another,
etc. The truth is
thirty copies of anything isn't going to go that far
anyway. I
suggest that we fill your order, or some round
number of each
pamphlet, say 30, but also pick a few of the ones we
like best, say
the top half dozen, and order 500 each of those,
along with 500 of
Mike Acree's pamphlet (or did we already order his?
I know we talked
about it...). That way we can concentrate on handing
those out, and
just keep two or three dozen each of the others on
hand if people
specifically ask about those issues. Taking a quick
review of the
ISIL pamphlets (see ) my tentative
choices might be:

• Dictatorship at Your Doorstep (
dictatorship-at-doorstep.html )
• A History of Jury Nullification (
history-jury-null.html )
• Immigration: An Open or Closed Door? (
resources/lit/immigration-english.html )
• The Hidden War on Your Privacy (
hidden-war-priv.html )
• Free Trade or Protectionism? (
free-trade-protectionism.html )
• The Causes of Aggression (
aggression.html )

  Unless others have other suggestions, I will
formulate this as a
motion for the Executive Committee to vote on.

Love & liberty,

Francoise, This did get done. I guess Marcy just

missed it. Please

do it.

Meetin of 5/12/07

In the letter re things that needed to get done

at the

May LPSF meeting that I delivered to you before


left, I had asked for an allocation of money for
brochures for our booth at Gay Pride week-end (I


enclosed the list of brochures needed -and cost-


my letter). I notice this wasn't done. It's not


problem for me personally. I will be away at


on Gay Pride, but it would be a shame for the


we didn't have a full range of documents on our
positions for people who stop by at the booth. I
don't know how fast ISIL ships, but waiting til


next meeting may not be a good idea. If you

think this

is important enough, you might want to consider
getting Executive Committee approval for the
allocation so I can place the order
