Re: Delegation in Vermont Protests Outsourcing of MLK Memorial

Hi Steven,

I found a site that may clear some doubts.
The competition was wide open to the whole world.
900 entries were submitted and one was chosen in
the millennium year of 2000.
It will take one month for Master Lei to complete
the Mountain of Despair and the Stone of Hope
using 100 segments of granite for easy transport by ship.
