4. Just an idea, but I wonder if it would make sense to add a section to the top of TFL (where we list 'Links' | 'Library', etc.) ... perhaps call it Freedom Projects or ????. In essence, a section where RKBA enthusiasts could review existing RKBA-friendly projects and efforts. We could currently list the American Freedom Essay Contest, the billboard program ( ), Citizens of America ( ), etc. Like our 'TUG' meetings in Phoenix, the idea would be to present a slate of projects available to those RKBA supporters that want to go beyond being keyboard warriors. For that matter, we could even list TUG meetings - getting all local RKBA activists together to work on the projects that turn them on - billboards, writing legislation, demonstrations, etc.
