Dear Ms. Connolly,
Having reviewed a copy of the NFS report on the 1991 Vermont
National Rainbow Gathering, I was reminded of our telephone
conversation of January 18, 1992, regarding the anti-gathering
regulations you are currently working on.
I recalled asking whether you really believed in what you were
doing with relation to these to-be-proposed-regulations, and your
reply to the effect that you believed them to be necessary.
Notwithstanding your sincere beliefs on this issue, I still have
serious reservations as to the necessity of additional
regulations which would have the direct and proximate effect of
further limiting traditional concepts of individual liberty.
Hopefully the accompanying summary will give you food for second
thought on your present position.
On the other hand, if you could take the time to bring to my
attention any substantial issues that have escaped mention in my
summary, it would be very helpful to my personal quest for an
accurate understanding of reality.
In service to a loving Creator,
