    what the numbers were supposed to be at the first anniversary march in May 1971. I believe that's about the same time that the vets marched and threw their medals over the wall, etc. But don't quote me on that because I get a lot of those dates confused.

    My husband and I went to DC last September for that march and it was the first time he'd been there since that November 1969 march. He wore a button from the 1969 march and said he thought the two crowds were similar, for what that's worth.

    We need not stride resolutely towards catastrophe, merely because those are the marching orders. -- Noam Chomsky
