My friends didn’t really know who Montgomery McFate is, or about her involvement with HTS/Minerva; they took one of the posters with them because they thought it was interesting.
I caught up with them at a concert last night (at Fort Reno Park). So the publicity war has literally been taken to the streets. My friend, Amanda (the one who took the poster down) is a reporter for Washington City Paper, and is “thinking of writing something about this on [their] website.”

This will be part of an ongoing commentary on the articles on the IRB published in the same edition.
