This weekend in D. C. during the anti-war demonstration, ending thirty-four years of silence, Jane Fonda spoke out against the war (of the military profiteers that never really ends).
Here's a video of her speech (she follows Sean Penn). After all these years, she is still full of eloqence, full of fire, full of genuine human being.
PS If you're too young to have an appreciation of her acting ability, I hope you'll rent a copy of one of her films. "Klute" is my favorite.
