John Stossel is my religion. I'm going to see if he'll sign my ass with a hot tatoo pen.

Let me check John's price list.....uh, signing a naked ass is $1,000.

I believe the promo and video work will be priceless to the FSP!

I think John carries a portable branding iron with him.

Initially I was a bit skeptical of the Stossel deal because of the cost, but I was persuaded because of this:

YES. . .  John Stossel will be our keynote speaker. In addition, Stossel will be doing an interview with Jason and Varrin.
Both the keynote & the interview footage, will be available as our promotional material. Hoorey!!!

He's really going out of his way to give us some great promo material. We can put the video on the website, in our DVDs, and quotes from it (and his speech) in our fundraising and recruitment letters and ads.

I just really hope he refers to your Harry Potterness looks once during the interview, then the cost will have been worth it.     :)

With regard to stossell doing an interview, do you mean his doing a story about the FSP, and if so where will it run?

In any case, great work Irena!  This will certainly at least generate a good local media article and get stossell more likely to cover us.

The Interview is on our request. He is currently not doing a story on FSP (best to my knowledge). But the Interview footage will be both our and his to use.

I suppose if he gets inspired by our event he may do a story.

That's great Irena!  Congratulations!  Stossel is a great point for libertarianism.  I give his books away regularly to friends who are "on the brink" so to speak of getting the whole concept of minimal government, etc.  Kudos!

Stossel gives all his speaker fees to charity. That's his only vice that I know of. ;)
