Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! I am on my mobile version of the door-to-door, going town-to-town holding readings/gatherings/discussions of my book "But What Can I Do?" This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels since 9/11 as I engage in dialogue and actions. It is steaming with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society we want ALL to thrive in

4 new solar batteries

6 new solar batteries in their holder, 6 new solar batteries! Take two down, pass it around, 4 new solar batteries left in the holder!

I am surprised when I head to 100% Natural 6a.m. this morning to use their bathroom and internet, to see the police still haven’t showed up! They weren’t here last nite when I returned from the beach about 10pm, either.

I wonder if they are moving to another block. They have told me that they stake out certain blocks for a month or so, and then they get orders to move on. They report there’s never any trouble, it's tranquil in Acapulco.

I hurry to do email, post to my blog, eat my fruit and return to the truck by 9am so I can move her into full sun.

Approaching my truck, I see the police have returned and are parked almost opposite my truck, as usual.

What I see next is a familiar brown board laying on the ground behind the truck. It is the board that holds my batteries in place. I look beyond the board and see an empty, blank space where two of my batteries were.

Gone. Stolen. 

Wires cut. Wires missing, along with the batteries.

I can’t believe it. I didn’t have them 14 hours. I sit on the curb so quickly, the police come running over and ask me if I’m alright. I can only point.

The most ridiculous thing is that they will not be able to sell these batteries – except to either me or Guillermo.  You can’t use them on a regular card – they’re fuckin’ solar batteries. grrrrr
