former president bush (the first) and the houston heckler have one thing in common: the love of pizza. and it has led them to the exact same pizzeria in houston (i'm sure ghwb has more than one fav pizza place, but he so happened to be near this one). this happened around jan. 14....
the houston heckler is enjoying a slice admidst the photo shrine to ghwb when a member of the secret service enters the restaurant and scopes out the place. knowing this could mean only ONE THING the houston heckler ducks outside to get his video camera.
thus, he's waiting when ghwb and his secret service posse stroll into the shop (i wonder how this works... do they stand around and watch him eat, I guess they'd have to, but can they a least buy a pizza for later?).
well, the houston heckler immediately starts yelling at ghwb about the many, many people he's killed (not all in person, obviously) and other things to that effect... well, maybe not... all I can recall is "you're a murderer! you've killed millions of people!"
part of the secret service posse goes and stands between the hh and ghwb. the hh keeps yelling, so the secret service decides maybe he should move along. the pizza place agrees.
the hh pointlessly complains to the pizza employee about their clientele. er... the 75 photographs surely tipped the hh off? (and like the pizza guy is going to argue with the secret service to keep a guy around who's disrupting the lunches of many pizza lovers).
later on that same day, the hh is chilling at home and posting to youtube when the secret service drops by. somehow he's able to arrange talking to them through the window (there are only two agents, I think).
they tell him they can't discuss matters while videotaping, so he should call the office to arrange to meet them elsewhere. by this time, it's pretty clear he's not in too much trouble as they didn't unceremoniously barge in and arrest him.... which tells me he has no criminal record, isn't a member of (a lot of things), and is not a registered gun owner. so, they figure a little yelling is all he's got in them.
he posted some of his calls where he was given the option of getting a lawyer and coming on down to the office. everyone had watched the youtube clip, sounds like.
some of the commenters were mystified how they found him. lol. they followed him. duh. then they ran all his info and went inside for a face-to-face. the secret service has computers, too.
as for ghwb, he seemed a bit puzzled as to why some fool was trying to keep him from pizza. and annoyed. I am going to take from the fact the hh was on some podcast (that I didn't watch) a few days later that ghwb is going to let this one go on by.
the hh made sure and tell the secret service he was "all about peace." hehe
btw, I really don't have a problem with what the hh did. he harmed no one and didn't even yell all that long. he also didn't damage property. so, that's free speech. of course, some of the things he said were things that the secret service has to look into. they appeared to be very patient with him and he might have even got to stay if he'd piped down the first time they asked him.
ghwb didn't really say anything back... but he was listening.
