  1. Deb,

    Your name leads to an anonymous site. Deleting your e-mail.

    I did read your e-mail referenced in an update at Mother Jones.

    First, you may wish to have your people look up the definition of slander and defamation. I would not hold my breath waiting for a retraction; a retraction by Mother Jones is not called for.

    Secondly, in sum, you write the WoA does not "sanction or approve of any of [its] members [providing commercial security services ... with respect to GTAC mining operation in Wisconsin]"

    Furthermore, you disapprove of WoA's providing commercial security services while wearing WoA patches or logos.

    So, what's the deal? Unknown WoA members are up north at the GTAC mining site, but you don't know why and object to it?

    You're in good company.

    Mother Jones update reads:

    "The Watchmen of America is not a security company that provides commercial security services and we are not involved in any way in the security operations with respect to GTAC mining operation in Wisconsin, nor do we sanction or approve of any of our members doing so while wearing our patches or logos.

    We sell many promotional materials including T-shirts, stickers, patches, pens, etc. to our public supporters, therefore we have no control if a person wears our logos while conducting activities which are not conducive to our true representation."
