An Explanation

September 30, 2007

I know that many of you are probably wondering what happened to the post that I had up yesterday about Marcus Luttrell appearing at the Texas Book Festival in November. Prior to posting the story yesterday, I sent a preview of it to Marcus’s father. After doing some research on the moderator and on the events for the remainder of the day, Marcus and his father began to have some serious doubts about what was going to take place. When looking at the Texas Book Fair schedule for the First United Methodist Church Sanctuary for November 3rd, it was obvious that the entire schedule was filled with a decidely anti-war sentiment, from the moderator, to the author appearing with Marcus to the book reviews to follow. Marcus, after consulting with Governor and Mrs. Perry decided that they didn’t want to take part in this type of agenda and have thus decided to cancel Marcus’s appearance at the Texas Book Festival.

We’ll be sure to keep everyone abreast as events for Marcus are scheduled.

    I hate that this happened, I mean the scheduling and the set up for confrantation - what a shame. I think it is best that he did what he did.

    Yes me too. I was looking forward to being able to show Marcus support, but understand why he felt it was necessary to cancel this appearance.

    Gosh, I am glad I stopped in to read before I posted on my site about showing up to support Marcus Luttrell.

    It is a shame that they would even consider placing him in such a position.

    I know what you mean CavMom. I was pretty upset when I saw what was going on. Hopefully we’ll have news soon about other venues that Marcus will be appearing at.
