Subject: RE: BS: Washington Anti-War Protest
I agree, Don--I'm Deep in the Heart of the Red States and around here, war protests are covered by the news only a) after all the murders and gruesome car accidents, and b) then only as sort of novelty items. The newscasters don't even know the lingo--we've had numerous "candlelight visuals" for peace, since they apparently have never heard of a "vigil". Sigh. But the tone is more akin to waiting to see if Punxsutawney [sp?] Phil sees his shadow than anything to be taken seriously.
We do it anyway, though.
