Ryan responds to shoe burning news report


Flyer for the Great DC Shoe Burn.

Jason Ryan, who created a stir earlier this week when he announced a planned DC Shoe burning for December, sent an e-mail over this morning with a rebuttal against the news report we posted last night. To recap, Ryan is organizing "The Great DC Shoe Burn" to protest the planned construction of a skate plaza in Phoenix, funded by the Rob Dyrdek Foundation.

I've edited down his response to bullet out the points he wants to make. The following is from Jason.
