You know, it's hard for me to have a proper protest when I can't get decent baguettes in Boston. It's just sad. Long bread, sure. Baguettes, forget it. Sigh. I guess I'll manage with good wine and choux pastery
Well, I see the advantage to having permits for a protest. The streets were blocked off for us with signs for no parking due to a "Special Event" (we're special)

Lots of people turned out for the initial rally, and I hope to have links for images soon. The march was good, but I'm feeling a little too old for this and had to soak my feet when I got home. The "Die-In" was great though because we got to lie down. Dear god, I'm old.

Favorite signs at the rally and march:
Have Another Pretzel

Lesbians
Against
Boys
Invading
Anything

Bush is Pro-Life - offer void in certain areas

(small print on a sign) Ctrl Z Ctrl Z Ctrl Z Ctrl Alt Del MIT Nerds for Peace

(on a baby stroller) Even I can pronounce Nuclear

Who would Jesus Bomb?

What the fuck is this?
H. Res. 153:
recognizing the public need for fasting and prayer in order to secure the blessings and protection of Providence for the people of the United States and our Armed Forces during the conflict in Iraq and under the threat of terrorism at home
And this passed! It fucking passed! (and thank you Bernie for your "Nay")

Alright, here's the deal. The day chosen for this I declare that day a national day of feasting and blasphemy. Who's with me?

Does this creep out anyone else?
How the coalition will establish the boundary between U.S. military and Iraqi laws remains a "work in progress," Wherry said.
"We're still making it up as we go along and hope for the best," Wherry, of Rock Island, Ill., said. "We are trying to have as little to do with this country as possible while, in effect, taking it over."

There is a protest this weekend on Boston Common. Remind me again why we need a permit to exercise our First Ammendment rights of peaceable assembly? Oh, right, because the "president" said we were at "war". Yah. Fortunately for him, high cimes and misdemeanors, seem to be subjective. But hey, what do I know.
Joss, Joss, Joss. So it's come to this. Mother issues? It was bad enough with just Robin. Sigh.

Spring Fever is creeping up on me. Another few days of this and I'll be climbing the walls. This is a time of year when it really sucks to work in a basement.
