4100 people protested the war and the presidency of George W. Bush in Minneapolis on Saturday, and I've yet to see any newspaper coverage.

My dad said that the PiPress had a picture, but they said only 3000 people were there.

I still can't believe you didn't blog about the protest besides to complain about the lack of media coverage. So much more happened there than your readers know. You and me and everyone with a blog are the new media.

But think of all the amazing things that happened. Talking to Zimmerman and learning about the chicken foot (for those who weren't there: chicken foot is representative of the semaphore symbols for N and D, representing nuclear disarmament. isn't it funny how much more complicated protest symbols used to be?). Seeing the anti anti war protesters driving home as we were walking down Nicollet? You totally had a moment with them, where you each acknowledged each other as having just as much right to have your opinions as them. It reminded me of when you told that story about watching two people argue about politics (I'm short on the details, but maybe one of them was a New Yorker and one was from Boston?) and a few minutes later they were sharing pats and jokes, and you were encouraged by seeing two diametrically opposed people get along in this divisive national climate. There were also the crazy hobos (who doesn't like a crazy hobo story? you'd have to be made of STONE!) and the black guy who was like "The iraq war is bullshit. I feel you guys. It's bullshit!" (he was my favorite, for the record)

Also: two more comments and I will be all the recent comments!
