    ...and i even got to wander around a bit in some tear gas that first afternoon...and i am quite sure i don't want us to go too far down that path again if there is any reasonable way to avoid it.

    our normally...somewhat...moderate police were just going crazy with the clubs, attacking people who had little or nothing to do with the events as they tried to "calm the crowds"--and this is nothing compared to what happened in tehran this past week.

    i hated the bush years...but i'm not anxious to literally "fight the power"--and imagine what the bush administration reaction would have been in early 2003 if we had taken to the streets in a more aggressive way to stop the war.

    i would not have been willing to lose "nedas" of our own in january of 2001...or 2003...but i do understand what you're feeling here--and i do appreciate how many had to suffer because we could not prevent that stolen election.
