From the LA Times: 100,000 anti-war protesters marched on Washington yesterday. Organizers were hoping for 10,000. Daayamn. This is why I wished I lived in Washington. It’s hard to be an activist in Charleston, S.C.

Our newspaper stopped running Foxtrot. I’m pissed. It usually makes me giggle, if not laugh out loud. But, thanks to the magic of the internet, I can tell the Post and Courier to suck it.

“If you took that happy, smiling guy from the box of Quaker Oats, handed him a bottle of gin and a rifle, and pissed him off to a point where he decided he wasn’t going to take it anymore, you’d get a little something like this.”

    It was so cool taking the metro through the areas around The Mall, and seeing all the people with anti-war signs! 🙂
    (And they were lucky and got amazing weather this year! I attended the protest just before the war started back in January 2003, and it was like 20 degree that day! Yeep!)

    And yeah, DC pretty much rules. Though we did have anti-abortion protestors last week. Hrmph.
