    They had a table full of literature set up in the university square in the sun at noon. Those 2 dudes must have been sweating their balls off. Do you think they get time just for sitting there? I saw no one stop at that table.

    I have seen them set up a booth for the incoming students along with credit card companies, local businesses, causes from Greenpeace to the Republican party as well as a few other church groups.

    I'd have to say they can count time for it, can you imagine a dub doing something and not being able to turn it in at the end of the month?

    LOL, prolly.

    free has flashbacks to pioneering, shudders

    They wouldn't be doing it unless they could count their time. Easy time, just sitting there (except for the heat).

    Man , I wish I was there. I would play one of the of talks by Bro Charlie Sinutko on my ghetto-blaster boombox- you know, the ones where he mentions "stay alive 'tll 1975" and it is not a joke- he is dead serious about Armageddon coming by 1975. Those JW's need a good history lesson, at college no less.

    Someone else posted a similar "sighting" the other day. Must be a new form of "informal witnessing". Pretty nervy, though, being they are against "higher education". They must be hoping to catch a few students who are considering "dropping out".

    It's not new. They have been doing it since before 2000.

    Yes, they are out on my campus as well--every Wednesday. They have a table and several stacks of literature, but no Watchtowers. Seems kinda lonely though. I never see anyone talking to them.

    I wonder what would happen if someone went to the administrator of that college with a transcription of the D.E.A.D. talk of this past summer's a$$embly and played that back there. I wonder how much longer the Witlesses would be tolerated there.

    I hope they try that somewhere near Bangor, Maine. Now, if only there would be a way to replicate Danny Haszard's methods of exposing the Tower into other regions where there are a lot of colleges. The last thing they would need is to have a booth set up adjacent to theirs that is run by apostates and carries apostate literature. A few of those Zero Dollar Bills and Void Checks would make good handbills at the apostate table, since they have recommended research on them. And if you get someone that is a Born Again manning a booth near the Witlesses, all they have to do is hit Ephesians 2:8 and 9 in context that tells of salvation being, not of works, but of Grace. It would be interesting to see who gets the most hits.

    I met two sisters at the Austin Airport before the relocation. Had a table set up. Thjey were kind enough to offer their numbers to help me find a hall if I came back into town.

    So Theocratic!!!
