Anna agreed to the Hot Potato idea as a way to go forward with her piece. I took the dropped court case, an excerpt from the article above/below and Anna's piece (folded) to Balboa Park, approached people at the Beat center, a Christian outreach booth, an Atheist booth, Flyer stand and SDAI.
Good conversations, the person working the counter at SDAI took up the hot potato personally (not as a part of SDAI). I had the potato for 2.5 hours. revisited each group I had talked to with empty hands and a very relieved grin.
