Besides my extreme distaste for RevCaNeat outshining me (SONOFABITCH), there's something more at stake here:
08:23 AM #
The Rev will be outwitted and ultimately co-opted by this very clever politician. That is a certainty.
08:24 AM #
The day will be lost.
08:25 AM #
And more importantly, I will miss my chance to magnify my message to the world.

(I can see Bud out of the corner of my eye, directing one of his small crew to focus on the Mayor and the Rev. It tears me to shreds.)

So I start shouting. Mostly just variations on "Hey! Hey, hey, hey!" Dumb as a rock, suddenly.
08:29 AM #
I jump up and down, trying to get his attention. Trying to get closer. Up and down, over and over, like a deranged kangaroo.
08:30 AM #
But I'm actually falling further back in the crowd. I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO JUMP PROPERLY.
