  •  You treated it as more party than protest yourself (2.50)
    Your entire runup to it seemed to be spent trying to make social arrangements. It seems to me you are being critical of those who pretty much followed your lead.
    •  Well, there is a social aspect (4.00)
           to marches, too, you know...
    •  wow! a critical MSOC post! (4.00)
      you've got balls!

      well, put a kilt on & walk with pride, me lad!

      well.  unless you're not a guy.  um.  errr.  in which case, you may not be so happy, er, with, um, them.

      in any case, i think it's good we can enjoy the march.  too little anger (or protest) & there's no movement.  too much anger & we burn people out.  & the core people will do this longer & better if they enjoy it & see more people joinging them.

      if people enjoy doing this, we'll get the band-wagon effect & that's ok.  b/c the #'s will translate to policy/media change & that'll translate to lives saved & country put back on the right path.

      & that's worth playing the bagpipes aboot.

      but I can vouch to the fact that she was discussing the issues until 2:00 a.m. the next morning, with the same level of conviction and stamina that she had on Saturday before, during and after the march. Besides, an army can't march on an empty stomach - it needs chili, bread pudding and cold drinks (thanks Rebecca and Jonathan.)

      It is not Morally Wrong, an affront to God, or a threat to Homeland Security to question George W. Bush's destructive policies. - one of my shirts at CafePress

      I went to see friends, and I went because I thought it was an important event. The former more than the latter. And it was like a party. It was also a protest. We had a fantastic time. And it was very meaningful.
