IRAQ: Anti-war protests

Tom Moore agrees with Phyllis Gardner about the San Francisco demonstrations against war with Iraq: "I participated in the San Francisco demonstration yesterday. While there were assorted radicals there, many like myself took part in a demonstration for the first time. I saw and talked to grandmothers, grandfathers, veterans of World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, mothers pushing baby carriages and carrying children. It was a cross section of people, all of whom were in good spirits. There were bands and performers, and a good time was had by all. While some of the signs were moronic, I particularly like the one that read, "you don't have to do it, George, your father will still love you." Several of them said, "The axis of Evil: Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld.""

RH: The Washington DC demonstrations were clearly meaner. Shall we be having "a good time" if war breaks out?
