Did I read that right?

I meant to post this on my blog earlier this morning, but kind of forgot about it until now. Did anybody else happen to catch this paragraph in Emmanuel T. Erediano's article about Boni Sagana and Dekada collecting fees:
The event coordinator, Conrad Ocampo, said supporters in the local community will provide boom trucks, scooters and golf carts, a sound system, flyers, cans of paint and bottled water for the march that will start at 4:30 p.m. at Kilili Beach across from Ada Gym and end at American Memorial Park [emphasis added].
I learned a while ago not to take everything I read in the Marianas Variety literally, so I'm not going to assume that this is accurate or evidence that Dekada is planning "to start a graffiti campaign like American soil has never seen."

But what if it is?

Well, You'll have plenty to do on the weekends. Sure enough, the article did say cans of paint. Mongolians don't have a sense of humor at all, not too sure the same can be said of phillipeanos. Still, it is ee and the variety. Good call, I'm still chuckling a little. Allright, I'm laughing now.. Hope it isn't orange paint, no one will be able to tell the difference between the paint stains and betel juice.

Angelo, wouldn't spray paint be to make signs?

Oh yeah.

That makes sense.

I didn't think of that. So who is bringing the posters?

Wendy said...

I guess I will -want to contribute some?

Dude, don't let this post become like the newscaster in the chopper during the Rodney King verdict saying something like, "We don't see any fires yet."

Dave-

That's funny.

I don't expect there to be any vandalism. I expect that they know they have more to lose than to gain from doing so.

I really thought it was just a reporting error, but the sign making thing makes sense.
