As Far As the Iraq War Protests in Pensacola

…they must have had a glimmer of the participation ennui, since they decided to combine it with a group protesting local police brutality.

Movement for Change and Veterans for Peace are combining for the demonstration because “violence is happening in Iraq, but it’s also happening in our community,” Satterwhite said.

So mortars are falling and IED’s are rampant in Bangla-cola. I hadn’t heard that, but I also don’t get out much. Major Dad and I went past their earnest but meager gathering just as it was breaking up. I didn’t have my camera…but there wasn’t much to snap.

    The “anti-war” crowd reminds me of the line from “History of the World, Pt. 1″…
    “We’ve become beggars begging from beggars. Last time that happened, Madam DeFarge took up knitting.’

    Does Holly Benson know, THS? She’s a smart girl: I’m sure she’d be able to fix it all somehow. 😉
