What does this all have to do with the innocent event like Woofstock? You people need to comment on the appropriate posts and get off your soap boxes. Not everything is an agenda and this is NOT about Bob Bayer and his affiliations. Remember the Salem Witch Hunts..... Get a life!!

As far is Bob Bayers goes, we wish him the best in his retirement. @Leah "Remember the Salem Witch Hunts" Where they Freemasons? We are talking about Freemasons not Witches. Silly rabbit. Unless you are saying the Freemasons are witches. Or the Masons control the witches, Brilliant! also your "Get a life!!” We can't because the stonecutters control our lives. Check out the video and the "We Do" song. "innocent event like Woofstock?” Maybe it is a Masons plot to control all the dogs of the world, have you ever thought about that? "get off your soap boxes" if we do that, how can we warn the world? Who will call the Avengers or Superheroes to protect us? You said “Not everything is an agenda” - We say: Or is it? Thank You Heather for the great Simpson you tube video. Now we all know about the Freemasons, They control everything :) :) :) The Simpsons Freemasons http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-4b5rsClOA&feature=related

@ James Sanna We are on to you too. You write a zillion articles, you are everywhere, and you control the Patch. This is way too much for one man to do, unless you are Superman! Ha, now we all know James Sanna is really Superman. You are a reporter like Clark Kent. You seem to be everywhere and know everything. You never see James Sanna, Clark Kent, or Superman in the same place. Superman’s other secret identity has been revealed.

Haha! Well, my great-grandmother was an Eastern Star (the Templar—er—Masons' sister society). Having some secrets up your sleeves runs in the family, you might say...
Woofstock in Linden Hills rocks. Hope to see everyone there with their dogs! My family attends every year and loves it. Also I love the humor in these comments Best wishes to Bob Bayers for a happy retirement. But I think he may be busy with the Stonecutters aka Freemasons ruling the world LOL I also had my suspicions about James Sanna being too good to be true. Now that it has come out that he is Superman with connections Eastern Star, the Templar, Masons' sister society, Masons, Stonecutters and other secret organizations so secret no one knows about them – it all makes sense. Since he is Superman, he probably knows all about area 51 in Nevada. Yes alien conspiracy time, isn’t Superman an alien. Also this all comes out on Star Treks 46th Anniversary, Coincidence? I think not Check out Googles home page – interactive New Google Doodle celebrates 'Star Trek' Hope to see you all at Woofstock and the Greek Festival at St. Mary’s Greek Orthodox Church. 3450 Erving ave South, Minneapolis Minnesota. Near the shores of Lake Calhoun
