Nussbaum also is asking that the congregation exiled from the $17-million Tejon Street property, Grace and St. Stephen's Episcopal, be allowed to hire a security team to patrol the property to avoid theft. "We don't want a wholesale looting of the building," said Lynn L. Olney, senior warden of Grace Episcopal.
Actually Nussbaum is an attorney for the Diocese and is asking the judge for the interlopers to be removed by April 1, 2009 so the TEC folks may celebrate Palm Sunday in their building. I am hopeful that you all understand that "coffee came out my nose" when I read the aforementioned quote. Perhaps the diocese should have done that first. In fact, maybe if the Episcopal Diocese of San Joaquin hired a security force to patrol ALL of our buildings the wholesale looting would stop here also!
