Robert Spencer and I spoke at an event organized by Sara and Dorrie, two powerful, passionate patriots in the Dallas/Fort Worth. They staged an incredible event at the redeveloped historic Texas & Pacific train station, a soaring Art Deco structure built in 1931. (Photo right. Ceiling detail below.)
I have not had a moment's down time -- to say thank you. This was a stunning example of the individual taking the initiative and making things happen.
The venue was breathtaking. The attention to detail was jaw-dropping, down to the name tags. Each one handmade with miniature Post American Presidency icons -- and the table centerpieces were handmade as well, each a huge book at the base. What heart went into this.
The crowd was electric. Good, decent concerned Americans who understand the mortal threat to the West and want to effect change.
And yes we had such a blast. Of course, I forgot my camera (slaps head), but these pics where tagged on facebook by Atlas reader Buster C., who made the trip to see us, so I grabbed his shots. Last time I saw Buster was last year, when he came to McKinney where I spoke to the Collin County Conservatives.
Speaking of Collin County, both Denise and uber mensch Katherine Park (who organized last year's McKinney event) were in attendance, as was Amil Imani, the new head of our Iran Freedom Initiative, Sid Garfield, Cathy Dunson (Atlas researcher on Obama's foreign contributions, Gaza Division) and her lovely son, Mike and Stacy, the 912 Fort Worth tea party leadership, and the Iraq war vets to whom we owe everything.
Signing books. Above photos thanks to Buster C. (Spencer, Amil Imani, Buster and Geller). I hope to have video up sometime in the next couple of weeks. If I get shots of the whole evening, I will update.
