As the person charged with "security" for our little group, I have thought about this a lot.
I believe it is too late to be quiet.
The path to safety now is to be noisy. Be so loud, be so many, that we can't just quietly disappear. Make Them fall back to laughing at us. Make Them settle for, "Ah, they're just a bunch of crackpots."
I say we go to New York. We make friends. We get the word out. We represent.
We Call All Yarnies. If not now, when? If not for this, why?
