Now, I haven't liked Scott McInnis for a very long time, that part is true. And I did interview him once a very long time ago for a local business newspaper. And I was appalled when he started a speech to a bunch of economic developers in Glenwood Springs with a couple of really off-color jokes--I was one of about 3 women in a room full of self-important white men at that meeting. But for the life of me, I can't remember ever writing a letter to the editor about him. However, I don't mind at all that he thinks of me as his enemy. He is not a very nice man.
From there I went to a rally at Two Rivers in support of clean energy. A lot of my friends were there protesting the choice of speakers and how the organizers (Bonnie Petersen and Kathy Hall) trapped some public institutions into supporting an agenda that they otherwise might not have signed up for. Quite a few of the protesters were local scientists, who were offended that a guy without any real scientific credentials was passing himself off as an expert in climate science.
There were about 30 of us outside, waving signs. Private security hired for the event told us that we could not stand on the sidewalk outside the convention center because it was private property. News to me, since the convention center is owned by the city of Grand Junction. They were operating on the theory that since they rented the convention center, they also rented the public walkway between Main and Colorado Streets. We weren't even allowed to walk through there carrying our signs. I'm not sure why they didn't claim domain over the parking lot, too, but they didn't seem to mind us standing there.
