By one incomplete count 3000 flyers were distributed.  Vagn walked up and
down with a fine boxy sign.  Ruben brought I. and D. along, who are old
hands at this stuff, I think.  Many people passing already knew of
Dmitry's jailing.  Two had secret decoder rings, which they swore had been
hacked to decode Alice in Wonderland, so it could be read aloud with their
families.  Anton, Jo and Joe and Joe, and Sonny and Sonny, and Paula, and
lo, and ms, and M, and many who wore the colors of the NYC-Geeks, and
other partisans were all there.

Free Dmitry Sklyarov!
