The following is a record of an event that took place on Thursday February 5, 2009. While I was present at the event, and am capable of providing further information/details, seeing that I have no formal training in journalism, I prefer to report the facts that have been documented elsewhere. My personal belief is that journalism is a profession and that those who are trained to report events should do the job. However, news will not always be discovered by the journalist. As such, as a citizen journalist I provide the sources of information, whereby the real journalists and researchers can investigate the actual facts.
