Coxsackie, NY

Your girl was in Coxsackie, NY yesterday (Sunday, December 9) about 8:30 AM just off the Thruway exit on Route 9W at an Extra Mart/Sunoco. She stoped my friend as he was pumping gas, wished him a Merry Christmas and told him her story. The story finished with the requisite compliment on his smile and a request for a ride to a church or transportation to I95 to get to DC. He drove off with the manifesto, marked as "protocol" and called me immediately since I'm a writer that dabbles in stream-of-consciousness tracts and the occasional rant. While it was already clear this woman was mentally ill (schizophrenia, or some sort of fugue state, no doubt) he wanted me to critique the piece and glean some sort of meanign from it. Later in teh morning, she ended up at St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church, just up the street from my apartment. She burst into mass, copies of her manifesto cascading form her hands down the aisles as she rambled about the black Church, oppression and microwaves. Can you please tell me what you know about this woman? The police were called but she was gone before they swarmed the church. I forwarded the updated scan of her protocol, which appears to be a work in progress. Hope to hear from you. Is there a myspace group with photos? I didn't get to see her, but an entire congergation now has copies of her manifesto, which desperately needs an editor.

Some questions and possible theories:

Was this woman molested or prostituted by her pastor, John Rodwin Ringwald? Who's Carl Wyman? And I'm asuming we're not talking about microwaves, the appliance, but microwaves, the frequency.

Also -- do you think this woman poses a significant threat to the public? "Kill the collection girl" sounds like it's a real, malevolent decree.

Glenmont, NY

I just gave Marilyn a ride in Glenmont NY at around 12:30 today. she asked me for a ride to staples. i decided this was going to be a quiet ride, since i wasn't sure what she would be asking of me. after loading her black suitcase and clear bag of many rolls of toilet paper, the 1st thing she said was 'are there many blacks here?" i was shocked, i said "in Albany" and she said, no, here. I said I have no idea. she said she had to get out of albany. then she asked me for a donation for her copies. i politely declined. then she said she was an activist like martin luther king before he died. then she handed me her manifesto wrapped around a kmart ad. she said that her name was marilyn gibbs and she wanted me to have this. then she thanked me for the ride, asked me if there were any churches around. i pointed to the one across the street. she told me i had a great smile and thanked me for being a white light on her journey.

i am still confused, but realized that she was definitely not all there. very nice though.

Tewksbury, MA

I saw Marilyn this morning at the entrance to a Home Depot in Tewksbury, MA this morning (12/6/07). Getting off I-495, I stopped at a light to wait to go in to the HD parking lot. I noticed a woman standing by the entrance with a satchel. She tentatively crossed the entranceway. It struck me as a little odd - as if she were not sure where to wait for a bus to pick her up, despite the fact that there is not a bus stop there. The fact that it was 15 degrees F out made it a little stranger that someone was hanging out there. I figured she might be waiting for a ride.

On my way out of the parking lot, I stopped at the light. The woman was back to the original side of the entranceway. She approached my car, and knocked on the passenger side window. She asked me which direction on the interstate she should go to get to Worcester (about 35 miles away). Right there, I figured we had a problem. Having met a number of people with perspectives of reality very different from my own, I immediately went on the defensive. I told her which direction she should go. I figured she was going to ask for a ride, and immediately knew I was going to say "no", although my first inclination with most people would be to say "yes". To my surprise, she didn't ask for the ride. She politely thanked me for my help and went back to the side of the entranceway. A moment later, she knocked on my window, and told me I had a nice smile and the nicest demeanor of anyone she had met that morning. I thanked her, and then the request for the ride came. When I informed her that I was going in the opposite direction, she asked if I could at least give her a ride a couple of exits down in the other direction. Meanwhile, I'm missing the green light, wondering how long I can be polite for. I told her I couldn't, as I had to get to work (which was true - for some strange reason, I was relieved I didn't have to lie). She thanked me and gave a pair of stapled sheets of paper. I figured it was a religious tract. She said "Motel 6" (which practically next door to the HD) and gave me the thumbs up with a big smile, and walked back to the side of the HD entrance. I glanced at the first line on the paper - it read "Kill the Collection Girl". I immediately sensed that she was not a religious pilgrim for any church I was familiar with. I think we all know what the rest of the tract was like.

Mental illness can be a terrible thing. Marilyn seems to have an upbeat personality, despite the fact that her writings suggest a very troubled person. I wonder what her quest is, how it started, and how she manages the financial aspects of her life. I wish her the best.

Burlington, MA

I just gave a ride to Marilyn in Burlington, Massachusetts. I picked
her up at the corner of Route 62 and Network Drive at about 10:30 am,
12/5/07. She said she was an activist like Martin Luther King and
something about who killed him. She first asked to go to a restaurant,
and then changed her mind asking to be dropped off at a church. She
said that she had been kicked out of a shelter. When I dropped her off,
she gave me her 2 page "brochure" (same as the one posted for Waterbury,
VT on 12/3/07) and a Staples brochure folded inside. She borrowed a pen
and on the back of the "brochure" wrote:
"0510 Bus, 10:20 am
Oral Sex Ride, Racketeering"

North Chelmsford, MA

Chelmsford Mills, North Chelmsford, MA - Dec 3 @ 3:00PM

Middle Aged Black woman

Waterbury, VT

I have a Marilyn sighting. A co worker pointed me to this site after I told him my strange story and he did a qucik google search.
It was outside a brew pub in Waterbury VT Friday 11/30 just before midnight, I wandered over to my car in the back of the Bank North parking lot. From behind me I hear a "hello.....excuse me....". It was a late 30's early 40's black women looking for a ride to where she was staying. Well since I live in a town/state that is 99.9% white, I figure she's not local and could use a lift. It was a cold night, she didn't look like she was dressed for a long winter walk, so I ask "where to" and she tells me the Best Western. No problem, right on my way home. While getting in the car, she asks me if there are any "clubs" in town (now I know she's not from around here). I explain that the two bars we have are closing, maybe there's something in Montpelier. I ask her where she's from and she tells me Auburn, CA which is pretty close to where I lived in Tahoe. We chat about that for maybe a minute. Half way to the hotel, the conversation gets a bit weird. She tells me of conspiracy theories, people out to get her, government stuff, etc, etc. I pull into the drop off area at the hotel, and she stays in my car for five minutes still telling me this stuff, giving me names of people to "Google", etc. I'm just nodding, smiling, and hoping she's getting out of my car soon. Before leaving she produces the attached two documents for me to take home. She had a whole stack of them. Thankfully she got out of the car and went on her way.

Burlington, VT

At 7:25 a.m., on November 29, 2007, I encountered Marilyn at a stop light at Main and Prospect Streets, in Burlington, Vermont. She crossed into traffic to hand me a copy of her manuscript through the car window. She had a handful of copies, and the next recipient was a local judge. I’m confident that he will set things straight.

Winooski, VT

Just met Marilyn at the Blue Star Cafe in Winooski, Vermont. She
came in to the cafe, ignoring the barista, and proceeded to sort
through random bags of stuff and scraps of paper for a half an hour
or so. She then borrowed another customer's cell phone (presumably
to make calls, though she may have been checking it for microwaves).
Back to the rummaging for a bit, then she approached the barista,
manifesto in hand. She handed it to the barista after making sure it
would get to the manager, assured us all that she was "headed to
Williston to straighten everything out with her birth certificate,"
and departed. Rest assured, if I ever meed John Rodwin Ringwald
(Carl Wyman), I will run the other way!

Amesbury, MA

i have just met marilyn gibbs at 1.30 pm in amesbury ma and decided to check
out this website. i have, of course, immediately disposed of the family
microwave (after explaining to my son that it is a dangerous dreadnought of
oppression, not the simply convenient means of making popcorn that he
thought). i read the critique of a person who called marilyn's diatribe as
"tarnished brilliance scattered in with the mad ravings"" and can only
assume that our critic failed to remove "tarnished brilliance scattered in
with" in order to adequately descibe a meeting with this woman. i once saw
a bumper sticker that read "support mental health - or i'll kill you",

Raymond, NH

hey...we picked up Marilyn in Raymond, NH on November 23..the day after Thanksgiving. she was freezing cold outside of the walmart distribution center asking to get to Portsmouth NH to pick up her birth certificate that had been stolen along with her suitcase. we weren't going that way so i dropped her at a mcdonalds to warm up and gave her a "friendship $20" as she called it - then she gave us this crazy "manifesto"...about 5 pages of ramblings about John Rodwin Ringwald and microwaves and her wash???? what's the deal with the lady???she was so incredibly sweet but obviously a bit "off".....

Newburyport, MA

I met Marilyn at Wendy’s in Newburyport, MA at approximately 3pm. I was having a late lunch with my daughter when she approached me and asked if I knew of a Salvation Army or Goodwill in the area. I told her that I wasn’t sure anymore, since the Salvation Army in Salibury had closed and I thought the next closest location was Saugus, MA. Anyway, as my daughter and I were leaving Wendy’s she asked if it would be possible to give her a ride to Portsmouth, NH. She said she was an activist that was staying the night at the Crossroads Shelter in Portsmouth. I did give her a ride, however she asked that I bring her to the Portsmouth Market Basket where she was going to spend the last bit of daylight handing out her paperwork, which she also gave to me with all the same info that everyone is reporting. I was surprised to see the entry from the person who gave her a ride from the Walmart Dist. Ctr in Raymond to McDonalds upon her request to get to Portsmouth to get her birth certificate and stolen suitcase on the same day I met her. When I picked her up in Newburyport, MA around 3pm, she had her suitcase with her and wanted to go to Portsmouth. I’d love to know what time of day she was in Raymond, NH.

All in all, Marilyn was very sweet. However, I’m still not sure what to make of this encounter after reading the other entries.

Colchester, VT

Marilyn was at Burger King in Colchester tonight!!!!!!!!!! I was a little creeped out by her as I was with my two young children, but she did give me her letter which prompted my google search! I'm intrigued! Is this the new Where's Waldo?

White River Junction, VT

Marilyn sat across the room from us at the Crossroads Café at 8:45 am (directly behind the bus station in White River Junction, VT. Great food btw!) The rather stylish looking black woman wearing a taupe trench style rain coat belted at the waist, she had dark hair what could have been "spit' curls framing her face (possibly a wig or just enough gel to make you wonder) with, she was seated just as we were coming in. She melted into the periphery with the business people having breakfast alone, absorbed in her paperwork. She was leaving at the same time we were, it was then she approached me, while I waited outside the restaurant alone. She handed me the folded packet of papers, she told me to read it, that it was important. She then told me the name of the hotel she had stayed at last night, and glanced back as my partner exited and held the door open again as she went back in to the restaurant, at about 9:15 am. The packet was 7 pages, and opened to the page marked PROTOCOL. "Dear White Women" (Which I happen to be) was circled in red pen as was the term "Microwave Abuse Oppression" There was also a page tucked in that began 'race separation', with other things heavily underscored. I can scan the pages if you'd like.
I can only imagine what she has been through. There is a tarnished brilliance scattered in with the mad ravings. She could be just a few terrible years of trauma on the other side of the side of genius. We all could be. May she find what ever piece of her shattered self she can, till then may she stay safe. Please watch out for her.

West Lebanon, NH

I met up with Mariln Gibbs on Saturday Nov. 17. She showed up for a Church Service in West Lebanon, NH.and later, a potluck at my friends house in Hartford, Vt. We meet for church on Saturdays at around 10am. She was handing out some of the papers after the service. She then got a ride to the potluck with some visitors who haven't been back to our church in 10 years after relocating to Washington State. Through conversation I discovered she was from Auburn Ca.
I had a few friends and family that I knew that used to go to the church there...which she said that she had been there..grew up near the church. She did not know any of them. After speaking to her more...I realized that she may have a mental illness of some kind. She never talked about some of the items on the papers except that she had her license taken from her and was trying to make it somewhere westward (I can't remember) and that she was a lobbyist. She was polite, talkative...and perhaps has a streak of brilliance...and I often feel that if you are severely gifted in one area...another area in the brain may not be right. Or perhaps some childhood nightmare issue...but I am going with the first one.

White River Junction, VT

Hi, I found your website...I saw Marilyn in WRJ, VT on the Advance Transit bus at about 7 am today...she was headed to the main bus station, I think she was headed to Virginia. She was passing out similar packets of photocopied sheets and wanted them given to the department of Domestic Violence in St. Johnsbury, VT. It looks like the content is similar to what you have posted on your website, except there are five pages here.

Tyngsboro, MA

Hello, I am writing to you after finding your website about Marilyn Gibbs. I encountered her this morning around 7:15 am on the corner of Christine Ave and Lakeview Ave in Tyngsboro, MA. I was on my way to work and as I stopped at the intersection she handed me her letter. She stated that she works for a Martin Luther King activism group and asked if I'd give her letter to a battered womens' shelter. I didn't read the letter until I got to work, I happen to work for a mental health organization. I showed the letter to some of my coworkers and we googled some of the phrases, which eventually led us to your website. We figured she was staying at a shelter, and took the bus to Tyngsboro, which seems like an odd place, but she was standing right across from St. Mary Magdalen rectory. She seemed coherent, and I called my dad to ask if he had seen her on his way to work a couple hours later, and she was gone by then. Her letter was 7 pages long, it looks to be different from the one on your site. My coworkers agree that she has more than likely been abused at some point, it seems like this took place in a shelter. All in all, an interesting encounter. I'd be happy to scan the letter if you'd like.

Boston, MA

OMG! We caught Marilyn today just west of Boston. The note hasn't changed, apparently. The funny thing is, we caught her eating what was probably a $70 meal at one of Framingham's few really sheik restaurants. I guess she didn't need all that money after all! I'm kidding; I'm pretty sure she didn't buy it herself, because she was with a guy in a very nice looking suit that my girlfriend thought was probably CT's federal house of representatives member John B. Larson, who's also on the internal affairs committee (had to check into it after the fact; of COURSE I don't know that off the top of my head, guys!). He seemed to be taking her pretty seriously, and what's weirder is that he looked like he'd been roughed up a bit on the way there. We could only hear a few words of what they were talking about after Marilyn gave us a flyer when we were on our way to the restaurant, but when we got outside, we looked for the car with the fed plates, and sure enough it had stacks of her flyers in the back. But you know what it also had? Big scratches all along both sides, and very dinged-up bumpers. The only explanation we could think of for this is that a bunch of big SUVs boxed it in along some lonely highway in order to pull it over forcibly. Were they after Marilyn? The world may never know!

Nashua, NH

Hi, A staff of mine spotted Maryln in Nashua, NH Sunday night in the EMS. She said she was an activist for Salvation Army. She gave her "protocol" to my staff. While most of it appears to be similiar to the one you have posted, it looks like she has updated it some. It is now seven pages long. I also can't believe I googled John Rodwin Ringwald and found your blog! I hope there are more spottings soon!

Claremont, NH

I, too, joined myspace just to track Marilyn Gibbs! I didn't meet her personally but did see a copy of her manifesto. I can say with certainity Marilyn was in Claremont, New Hampshire on November 7, 2007 and may still be here. From her writing and from comments in other postings, I gather Marilyn is an elderly, well dressed, black lady. Can anyone give a more detailed description? It's amazing she can survive, let alone travel so extensively. I wonder how she does it. We have a homeless shelter in this small town, so it's possible she's staying there. My heart goes out to her where ever she is. The nights here are getting cold!

Claremont, NH

Holy Shit! I guess I better put on my Tin-Foil hat so the Microwave Technology Abuse Oppression doesn't get to me! BWAHahahahahahaha!!!!

Okay....according to my Microwave Technology Abuse tracking devise, it looks like Marilyn Gibbs was in Claremont, NH on November 7th....12:55 pm to be exact (she wrote it on the envelope). She mailed a letter (I have in hand) labeled "Bathroom Button Offense" to the Board of Directors - Domestic Violence Organization. It's looks like it's about her stay at a shelter in Nashua, NH dated 10/11/07. See below:

1.) Take my toiletries to keep control of my wash in prostitution.

2.) Pouring out my toiletries (Lipstick offense fungus).

3.)Putting "black names ownership" and prostitution directives on my toiletries and saying that blacks pay for my toiletries.

It goes on and on!

I'm gonna scan and email Tom. If anyone else would like a copy ping me here on MySpace.

She was in Claremont, New Hampshire on November 7, 2007.

(no location)

I will make every effort to make this short, but you know as well as I do, it needs to be explained. I work as a Window Clerk for the US Postal Service and I encountered the same situation. This woman was black, not bad looking, but with the worst wig I have ever seen. She wanted me to weigh something and give her the postage. I saw the stack of papers that you wrote about and suggested that she get an envelope. After a little confusion, reluctance, and conversation, she bought an envelope and put the piece in. Because I put a "meter strip" on the piece, I had to take it across the counter. Whoa nelly, did that set her off. I knew at that point I wasn't dealing with an entirely sane person. She got angry, told me to give her money back and let her buy stamps. I did as she said and watched her every move. She stuck the stamps on the papers and went outside to put them in a collection box.
Apparently she wanted her word out, but didn't want me to see it. So, after she left, I went and pulled the piece, put it with the old envelope and gave it to the postmaster. It was the most bizzar shit I have ever encountered. No one knows what it was all about, so I googled one of the names on it and found you.

Leominster, MA

Yo i picked up this lady last nite and i kno i dont have a pic but i am a real person and i picked her up in leominster mass and she told me that she wanted a ride to a waffle house but we dont have these so i brought her to a bar and she gave that pamphlet and said she needed to go to a shelter more stuff bout carl wyman and then she left and i read the pamphlet and i called c. welsh and she is REAL!!!!!! and seriously i figuring out because i dont even get what 667 microwave technology really is but ima find out!!

Brattleboro, VT

hello, my friend and i recently came into the possession of this mysterious lady's letter, which seems to have the qualties of the one posted above. We are in brattleboro vermont and would like more information as to who this person is. The letter was received earlier today (10/28/07) along main st in brattleboro. there wasnt much time to talk with her becuase we were in traffic, but she said something about delivering her message somewhere (we couldnt really understand her). If anyone wants more information, message me. ill try and type up the letter sometime soon, but until then, i would be very pleased if I could obtain more information on this mysterious woman. look forward to hearing more!!

Somersworth, NH

what the hell is a tortured microwave lobbyist anyway. she stopped me in my tracks in a parkinglot in somersworth, nh 2 days ago at 7:00am and introduced herself. she handed me her "protocol" and said that she spent the night at the gonic shelter in rochester,nh. I have been facinated by the things she writes, like I am trying to decode it somehow. well, soon I googled some of her key words and have found other folks have these strange run ins and stories to share. please tell me any new developments you might have. Marylin has bcome a strange new hobby of mine, ha.

Marilyn Gibbs was at my house today. My husband (a minister) gave her a ride to the bus station.

White River Junction, VT

To all: WOW! Can you believe that because of THIS WOMAN, I now became a user/member of My Space. My 7 kids have been members for a long time but dear old dad was left in the dust...until NOW.

OK, Melissa, you can thank ME for giving this woman a ride from White River Junction, VT to the middle of Montpelier yesterday a.m. Obviously she found her way to your home AFTER I dropped her off around 8:15 a.m. yesterday at the busy intersection just past the State Capital Bulding going away from 89. I was on my way up to a business meeting in Williston. She first asked to go to a Catholic church in Williston but as I talked more with her, and she said she was a lobbyist with a cause, I said "Don't you want to go to Montpelier?" She said "Yes" so I dropped her off.

I got an earful on the 1 hour ride up from WRJ. Upon arriving in Montpelier, she informed me that I was her white helper, or something like that and she said we were friends for life. She also told me that her "stalker" who she claims in her paper is a black minister who is a pimp, was WITH US IN THE CAR THE ENTIRE TIME and that we had NOT had a safe ride. HE HE HE, HO HO HO. There I was, sitting all nice and calm parked in a nice quiet spot with HER telling me we had NOT had a safe trip. WOW! I know I'm getting gray and have 3 teens and am losing my mind at times but this was a revelation :-)

She also said she wished she could get the microwave chip out of her ear so this black minister could not track her. There were some other unbelievable things.

What amazes me is how she survives and gets around. She is anti-CIA and anti-government in general as she claims corruption within the "system" at some levels, at least. My guess is that she is harmless. What a bizzare encounter. I am Christian in my beliefs and even sang "What a Friend we have in Jesus" to her, in hopes to get her mind off this remarkable obsession she has with the matters she has written about in her document, etc.

Thanks for posting. Hope this helps those who may need it. I'd give her food and basic stuff but nothing more. I can't find any proof of what she writes about. If anyone has any proof of any thing she expounds on, I'd be interested to know about it.

Oh, yes, she said it was important for her to stay cold or cool so the technology troubling her body would be rendered ineffective. She was worried when I turned the heat on in the car along the way. What a sad case.

Brattleboro, VT

I guess I am now of member of two "clubs". I had an encounter with the lobbyist, and I just joined MySpace for the same reasons as Tim. I took my kids to McDonalds for dinner last night in Brattleboro, Vt. The man in front of me in line had $2.oo in change and purchased a double hamburger. After his initial transaction, he asked the teenage clerk how much an order of fries would cost. She told him that it was $1.10. He only had a dollar, and walked away dissapointed. I offer him a dime and he was overjoyed ... he told my kids that I was a great man! I was left wondering why the clerk hadn't offered. While we were dining, I noticed a well dressed woman offer some reading material to another patron. "I'm a lobbyist", she said, "make sure that you read it". Later, we heard three LOUD burps. These were huge drawn out man sized belchs. When I looked (out of the corner of my eye), there was only the woman whom I had seen handing out the papers. My daughter, who had a better view, confirmed that it was indeed the woman who had made the commotion. We had a little chuckle, and I noticed from that point, that she ate her meal standing up. When we finished, she approached and asked for a ride to the dollar store. I agreed and as we left the restaurant, my ten year old son asked what would happen if she pulled out a gun and shot us. I assured him that I felt confident in my ability to overpower her if it happened, and pointed out that she could have shot us right there in McDonalds if she had been so inclined. We took her the short distance to the Dollar Store without any conversation. When she left, she told me for the second time in an hour that I was a wonderful person, told me that she was a lobbyist and handed me the paper. She mentioned that she was staying at a local motel and wondered if she would safe. That comment made me wonder tha same thing. After I tried to read the paper she had given me, and after reading these comments, I am more concerned than ever. Not that I think she is the victim of a stalker, or microwave technology, but because she is in a very vulnerable position ... obviously with some issues and depending on the kindness of others to negotiate her way. I hope that I am doing the right thing in doing nothing.

Worcester, VT

She was at my house in Worcester, VT (near Montpelier) this morning. She gave us the same paper.

Tuesday, October 2, 2007

Durham, NH

I found a copy of her 2-page manifesto tucked in a paper pile tonight and decided to Google "John Rodwin Ringwald" and came up with these blogs and websites - wow - what a phenomenon! Marilyn was on my bus on October 2, 2007 - I picked her up on the UNH campus on my Dover run and she kept yakking at me but I put her off as she was distracting me - I promised I would talk to her later. She wanted to get to Portsmouth (then WHY were you on a bus that was clearly marked "Dover"?!? Oh, well, the supposedly educated college students do it all the time...) She rode around until my next run, when I had a trainee and was riding. Marilyn asked if my hair was naturally curly - she seemed fascinated by it. She was well-dressed and articulate and asked about the area - very normal conversation for an out-of-towner... We got to the Fox Run Mall and she got up, pressed the one-page "Protocol" into my hand and made some dire warning about "watching out for" something or somebody - I don't remember her exact words - and abruptly left the bus. She never asked for money, nor were there any requests for money on the paper. Needless to say, I was stunned when I read the paper; she never gave any indication that she was loony - maybe she was wising up and being more guarded? I don't know. I do know that this is a fascinating saga and I hope she will be OK - it's amazing she continues to travel (seemingly) unmolested and well-kept/fed. You go, girl, Marilyn - you "Tortured Microwave Lobbyist!!

White River Junction, VT

My friend came to my house this morning with breakfast from Dunkin Donuts, and a white photocopied, hand written page. The same page that is transcribed above. She asked my friend for a ride to the nearest catholic church that was having a mass. As it was 8:00 on a Sunday, she gave her a ride to the Catholic Church around the corner from the Dunkins. Once she got in the car, she then asked for a ride to White River Jct., VT. Of course my friend said no, as that is an hour and a half away. Marilyn setted for 2 dollars and a ride to the church.

At 8:15AM, Marilyn documented an Oral Sex offense ride, carjacking by microwave abuse technology. My friend had no recollecection of this, and oddly enough, the floppy disc in my friend's car that she was on the way to my house to work on, was blank when she arrived here. Was that due to the microwave abuse technonlgy? Very strange...

Auburn, ME

9/28/07 I gave her a ride tonight from Auburn to Lewiston, ME. She is a very nice woman. I am guessing that she lives with schizophrenia. Her plan is to head to Portsmouth, NH.

Lewiston, ME

LOL, I got this Same note today from what seemed to be a nice, friendly woman. I couldn't really make a lot of sense of it or read much of it, just enough to know it was bizaar and twisted.

Erie, PA

I don't know if you are still interested in Mariyn sitings, but she is now in Erie, PA. I have attached the letter she is handing out. I met her while she was standing on a corner, waving down cars. She asked me for a ride to downtown, but I was heading a different direction. She then told me "I am a lobbyist" and handed me the letter. She said she needed help getting a man into a cemetary. But the letter says nothing about a dead man or a cemetary that I can see. She did not ask for any money. She handed me the letter and started walking away. I called her back to ask her what she wanted me to do. She said to read the letter and send it to "the Elks."

I can't believe I googled John Rodwin Ringwald and it came to your blog. i just picked up this lady at the bank, she asked me for a ride to staples to make photocopies...I ablidged and then she just kept going ona dn on about this microwave abuse and the john rodwin ringwald guy. She gave me a 6 page photo copy of her "story". Isn't it amazing hom much she really belivieves what shes talking baout. By the way if you belive it, she's trying to get $2000 to go to Geneva Switzerland to talk to the U.N to get this stuff stopped. She asked me for a donation, i told her the ride was my donation, then she parted by saying, theres a travel agent right over there if you want to leave a ticket for me to Switzerland, its $900.

Wow I can't believe how much she really believes what she says!

When I get a chance to scan in the letter i'll do it and get it to you. Its really bizarre how much of a fantasy she's created.

Lewiston, ME

This woman gets around! I work at a church in central Maine and she stopped in here to ask for assistance and to make copies of her letter. I read it--my head hurts. I think I need a translator. I decided to google some of the items in her letter and found this blog. So, whoever's tracking her--mark off Lewiston, Maine 8/22/2007.

I was also blessed with the prescence of the illustrious Marilyn Gibbs just last night. I work in a small newspaper and about 6:30 we received her as a "special," guest. At the time she arrived there were just three of us in the office. I can't claim the pride of being the first to greet her, a lovely co-worker of mine claims that brief honor, but I did get to enjoy 2-3 hours of her company. Apparently she wanted us to publish her manifesto and failing in that got a bit upset when told that we couldn't print her out 42 copies. My editor and I were the only ones in the building, both of us women (and white) and we got quite nervous when we read the letter starting out as "Dear White Women." I bargained her down to five and after addressing the letters, which she had folded and then stapled shut about 20 times each she asked for a ride to the post office. Luckily, it was just down on the next block and we said our fond farewells. We are now thinking of a new policy for entrance to the building after the businesses office has closed.
It was an experience meeting her,,an experience. Her rant has changed a bit and become a bit more refined and understandable if I had more time I'd type it out, but I'm at the scene of the crime now. Dave, the computer guy, did a search for her after hearing of our enviable escapade and found the blog.
She should have her own myspace to track her progress from one point to the other. Lord knows I wouldn't want to be in the shoes of Carl Wyman or that ghetto, street, trying-to-be-white minister, John Rodwin Ringwald.

Erie, PA

Ok, I we had a visit this weekend in our parish by none other than this I jumped on line and typed in a few key words in the names she was using and found you. She seems to be quite the traveler! She is now in Erie, Pennsylvania, going to the churches in our area asking for money for doctors appts., etc. Thanks for clearing this one up! Still not sure WHO or WHAT she is, but it is interesting to know that she is making her way around the states!

Cumberland, MD

Hi Tom.
Got a call from Cumberland, Maryland about a Marilyn sighting. She was passing out the papers in a Burger joint and it had our Shelter's name and number on the front.
One of the employees called us to tell us about the papers with our name on it. So now you can add to your website.

Oskaloosa, IA

Hey Tom!

Just wanted to let you know that we had a run in with Marilyn in Oskaloosa, IA. (Small town in southeastern Iowa....population about 12,000.) That woman is bat shit crazy. Thankfully I didn't have to deal with her, but my coworkers did. She really hurt some of our students, in effect saying that we should fire them because they were black. She used our restroom and "was offended." We can't quite figure that one out as mainly women work here and we don't pee on the seat or anything!

Because we are all curious....was she wearing strange makeup when you saw her? She almost looked like a corpse when she was in our campus library. She also had on black gloves and was handing out her hand written manifesto. I think I'm glad I couldn't really read it!

Anyway...I don't know what we did to deserve her, but she's damn lucky she didn't get punched in the face. She was quite rude to our black students and really hurt their feelings.


Oskaloosa, IA

Hi Tom,

Your lady was in Oskaloosa, Iowa today.

I don't know you but I just received a very similar letter from an old woman in a KFC. This is in Ames, IA. Someone should start a website that tracks this crazy old woman.
