Don't Go to a Vigil Without Phoning the Local Media


By Philip C. Restino

It is 4 pm here in daytona beach, fla ... i am not an organizer, just a participant, but i thought i would phone the newspapers and major tv stations here in the daytona beach market about tonight's candlelight vigil at 7:30 pm supporting cindy sheehan ... even though it is a national story and a national effort ... 1,450 vigils scheduled around the country ... not one of the 4 tv stations new about it and the major newspaper did not know about it ... the only one who knew about it was the local newspaper serving the black community ... please get the word out to the organizers of the vigils to phone up their local tv stations and newspapers and get the fax numbers for the respective news desks so as to fax over details ... i have a feeling that some of us may be taking media coverage for granted ... ok, gotta go
