Damn right. =P And while we're at it, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld and Rove should go, too.

[link] , seriously. BTW, her sister actually went to the same school as I did, at roughly the same time, though I never ran into her.

In any case, this is good stuff, although the letters on the sign could have been bolder - come on, use up that marker! How did the protest go, BTW? A lot of people got arrested, they didn't nab you, I hope?

I don't think any of the protestors on foot had any problems.
I know there were a bunch of protestors on bicycles that got busted.
But that wasn't anywhere near the convention site.
I was able to go just about anywheres I pleased on the streets with no problem, because my job
was inside the perimeter that was off limits to the general public when they blocked off streets during the convention.

Ah, cool. Actually, if you heard of the incident where some guy infiltrated the actual convention and tried to climb up to Dick Cheney's podium or something, he was from my school, I even talked to him. It was hilarious, although he got into a heap of trouble with the cops and almost went to jail.

Yeah, I'm with that guy. Apparently Prince Harry is going, and I hope to goddess he doesn't get shot or blown up cause if they killed a member of the royal family it'd totally be nuke time. Shudder...

That strikes me as an awfully cruel and counter-productive sign.

No, let's NOT send the Bush twins to Iraq! Stop sending anybody, for that matter. I know what kind of point that guy was trying to make, but schadenfreude is not the solution.

He should never went over there. Yeah, Saddam was a despot, but there never was a clear and definate link between him and 9/11. That area is now destabilized for who knows how long!
