Has anyone been sent the e-mail going around showing a photo of Brooklyn HQ with text attached to it saying in essence:
"We all know that the GB has been cutting back on expenses by reducing printing runs, making fewer CD's, going to part time help and selling property. At the annual meeting a story was told about the famous "Read The Watchtower Daily" sign and how they no longer illuminate it at night to save expenses. The other side of that sign has a clock that has also been blacked out to save expenses. After receiving numerous complaints from irate citizens, the Mayor's office contacted the WTS to ask why the clock was no longer working. After being told by the WTS that the reason was the cost of electricity, the City decided to put a new meter on that side of the sign that would be paid for by by the City, and thus restore the clock to full operation."
The e-mail goes on to say how amazing Jehovah is by allowing for this wonderful "landmark" to continue on.
I wish I had the original e-mail, but that is pretty close to what it said. It is obviously one of those JW e-mails that takes on a life of its own and is circulated ad nauseum.
What do you think?...true story or JW urban legend?
