Deju vu from MOVE?

Another year of writing about an unsolved murder, another protest sign from MOVE members alleging ulterior motives.

Deju vu from MOVE?


One can never be certain, but this sign is reminiscent of previous protestations MOVE posted outside the Inquirer's New Jersey office in years past when I asked uncomfortable questions about the unsolved murder of John Gilbride.

Last time, the group blasted me by name and accused me of supporting "murder, violence and terrorism." (As you can see from this slideshow, I kept the poster as a souvenir.)

This time, MOVE's message is more subtle. The signs, placed along on Haddonfield Road in Cherry Hill, do not mention me, Gilbride or the slain man's 16-year-old son, Zackary. They politely ask passersby to phone the Inquirer.

Slight problem: Whoever made the posters printed the wrong phone number. Instead of annoying me or my editors, the extension reaches an automated system at a different company, Broad Street Media.
