One of our long time customers, BarbinDC, had a little spare time yesterday and sashayed herself over to the Capitol to help deliver some petitions with progressive Democratic Representative showing support for the Occupy movement. My signature was on there so he helped make sure it got to Speaker Boehner.
You can catch a glimpse of Barbara in a brown smocked blouse.
Five or six Democratic House candidates from all over the country were also there and each spoke to the cameras before we went to Boehner’s office. What a feisty bunch they are! We weren’t allowed inside the office; the Press Secretary came out to the hall and keep saying the same thing over and over: I’m happy to accept your petition and will give it to the Speaker. There were some cameras from CNN and other folks, so the candidates all gave another short spiel for their benefit. One of them noted that we were standing by a sign at the office door that said: Welcome! Please come in! HAHAHAHA!
Looks like Boehner has the same rules as Crockett Keller’s handgun school.
Well done, Barb, well done. A grateful beauty salon thanks you.
