    BUT, FIRST, SHOULDN’T WE GUARANTEE “PURE
    TEA” AT HOME?

    It was a Saturday morning in October, 1998. I’d just settled into my apartment in my new, adopted city, Kingston, NY.

    Gun fire from the street three stories below awakened me.

    Stupidly, I poked my head out the window. But, no, it was merely American and British Revolutionary troops firing at each other with blanks.

    In its desperate attempt to stimulate the weak, local economy, a few years ago, IBM having packed up and left hundreds of people unemployed, for maximum excitement, the city government had created bogus history, enlisted men-who-would-be-boys to carry out a weekend of “entertainment” for tourists which, were there a single patriot in the crowd of “performers” or onlookers, the scene might have turned into a riot. But, no, history would not be vindicated.

    British pyromaniac troops in 1777 had sailed up the Hudson River for the express purpose of playing with matches, as they were well-accustomed so often around “their” world; the White House was no exception.

    I quickly learned that the local media were full of frivolity, in “CELEBRATION” of that 1777 burning of our city…probably the worst disaster in Kingston, New York’s first capital’s, treasured history.

    And, yet, here were adults, many military veterans, or kin of those who fought to defend our freedom, participating, stimulating, cheering on the mock troops to “re-create,” yes, “CELEBRATE” that ignominious event, but one THAT NEVER OCCURRED: there was not the slightest skirmish between British and American troops. It was totally concocted to stimulate the economy.

    The yankee militia was off fighting in the north country and to the south. Scouts had alerted Kingston’s women to flee with their children ahead of the approaching British naval vessels. The former were long gone by the time the British reached the western shore, off to Hurley, Stone Ridge and points beyond.

    Perhaps worse, the charade teaches YEAR-AFTER-YEAR the uneducated masses false history; it seems to justify the Brits’ torching Kingston.

    “Hell, the Brits had to DEFEND themselves,” even friends tell me. “Retaliation was natural. You can’t blame the British. It was WAR.”

    No, there was not one single shot fired at an adversary.

    Immediately, I launched a writing campaign hoping to shame the perpetrators into ending it right there and then. But, no, the city has repeated it every other year since.

    I expressed my anger to a Poughkeepsie magazine editor. He suggested I hire mercenaries to capture the “British troops” as they arrive on shore at Kingston Point Beach.

    Yeah, with what money? I’d been recovering from a couple long illnesses. Besides, my only income, because I couldn’t work, was Social Security retirement.

    Thinking about it, I asked myself, “I wonder what the citizens of San Antonio, TX, would say and do were the local government to CELEBRATE their defeat at the Alamo?”

    Hell, Kingston’s mayor and tourism bureau egged on crowds to CELEBRATE the torching….

    Ah ha! Perhaps we ought to encourage Chicago’s citizens to mount a dramatic recreation of The Great Chicago Fire. Hire actors and rent “Mrs. O’Leary’s Cow.” But, we’d have to train her to kick over the oil lamp, on cue. Can do!

    Maybe we can get both cities to steal Kingston’s thunder. And, NOBODY SHOWS UP here.

    Then, I had what was to me, a really and truly unpatriotic thought: why couldn’t we, with sufficient capital, reenact December 7, 1941’s Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor? What’s to stop us?

    I made up posters, presenting us to the public as the producers of all three events. “We seek actors to play the historic roles of Sam Houston, Davy Crockett, Mrs. O’Leary.

    We even described “short, Orientals,” with propeller-airplane experience to fly simulated Japanese Zeros off simulated aircraft carriers lying off shore downtown Kingston.

    Yep, it’s said the worst acknowledgment, or “recognition,” is NO RECOGNITION AT ALL. Nobody made a peep. Not a sound.

    Biennial after biennial “CELEBRATION,” I hounded the mayor’s office, wrote excoriating letters to the press. Not the slightest reaction. The New York Chairman of one of the Veterans’ organizations balled me out for “bothering me” with the matter. I even threatened to take the matter into my own hands.

    Indeed, on this day September 11, two years ago, the 6th anniversary of the Twin Towers disaster, I even considered adding the, yes, why not? “CELEBRATION” of that murder of almost 3,000 souls at the hands of terrorists.

    Today, I wonder if anyone would have complained.

    Our society is so sated with real and mock horror of the vilest, perhaps nothing can penetrate their consciences to exclaim, “I’m fed up and I’m not going to take it anymore.” And, then, to ACT. With the speediest and most conclusive deeds imaginable to demonstrate, that’s right, neighbors, from now on, I’ll DESTROY ANYONE OR ANY GOVERNMENT which allows, let alone PERPETRATES, such villainy. Just TRY to send me to jail.

    I need YOUR participation at Kingston’s “Ground Zero.”

    They want tourism? Let’s give it to them.

    I want to recreate ALL FOUR DISASTERS, each separate from the others, but within Kingston.

    WHAT CAN YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS
    CONTRIBUTE?

    I’ll have the national media here, you can count on it. If I have your full support ahead of time.

    Please send this on to as many as you know. You may have to pitch tents and have your wives, husbands, boy- and girlfriends cook camp food. What fun, huh? With the TV news cameras buzzing…..
