And nobody got hurt. (Although there are some who will be punished for not attending, as soon as the caiman posse catches up with them, poor things.)
OlyBloggers in attendance: Sarah, Meta, Phil, Norm, Jade, V-ster, Rob and myself. The band was hot, and in between songs, the conversation alternated between goofy and profound (mostly goofy, I'm glad to report). Here are some pictures from the evening's events:
Here's the initial crew. From the left: Norm, Meta, Rob, and Rick (making the sign of the caiman). Sarah's taking the picture (sorry Jimbo).
This is Meta displaying the caiman symbol: ^@^. Scary.
In this picture, two angry caimans square off in an ancient ritual of caiman fighting.

This young man, Justin Boyer, is another N.W. connection. The rally permit for July 3rd state capitol steps from 2-4 pm is in his name, as is the registration form for "Patriots Against White Genocide". He can be reached at (email link down).
Justin has a lot of energy and a desire to make a difference in the world, I would very much like to see his passion redirected towards something productive like Habitat for Humanity. Any other ideas welcome. Career choices can be difficult for anyone, especially youth.
Please also welcome Justin Boyer to OlyBlog, he now has a membership. Perhaps together we can sort out any misunderstandings and also come to some agreements for the safety and well being of all.
Update 10/2006 - Justin Boyer has left the National Socialist Movement, moved back to Ohio, and is now Ohio State Unit Leader for the American National Socialist Worker's Party (Bill White's group).
The National Socialist Movement is rallying in your city because our members live there, instead of just passing through while doing a few years there at Evergreen College.
Feel free to respond either on his blog or here, or even both places. It seems Nazis misunderstand the wonders of Olympia.
Wifi not only in Tacoma, but in Puyallup, Orting and Eatonville? Say it is so! From muniwireless:
The Rainier Communications Commission (RCC) is seeking information in the attached Request for Information (RFI) for its member communities on the best ways to deploy a wireless broadband system or systems to serve the internal needs of its member jurisdictions, as well as the external needs of their residents, businesses and visitors.
Based on the responses to the RFI, the RCC and its member jurisdictions may choose to move forward immediately with either a pilot or full system implementation, so it is important to respond to the RFI at this stage. Respondents are encouraged to provide information concerning all of the elements detailed in the RFI, but may alternatively respond to the subset of elements where they have the most knowledge or that are most pertinent to the products and services they provide.
As you're considering a move north of the Nisqually River, please join the conversation on wifi (wireless internet) in Olympia going on right now at Better South Sound.

Please welcome Cpl. Jill Laoch, National Socialist Movement Director of Women's Affairs. She can be reached at (10/2008 email down). At the April 2006 NSM rally at Lansing, Michigan Ms. Laoch is quoted as saying "We need, as Aryans, a country of our own. Our race is our country. And right now the Aryan people don't have a nation. The melting pot has destroyed it."
I've watched a video of the Lansing rally, I do recall Ms. Laoch expressing a loud opinion about "shit", I don't recall the specifics, only that it was not gently expressed. If the NSM absolutely has to perform in Olympia on July 3rd, and if women absolutely must be members, I hope we get a chance to hear Cpl. Jill Laoch speak. (Update: Alas, Ms. Laoch did not appear.)
Eventually I will write up entries for two more NSM members as part of our adoption plan. I also will be filling in some rank and titles. If anyone has any special requests just let me know.
