Hey, I forgot about this sign I saw today
On Rte 3, going down to Rt 128 in Boston (area).

Big hand lettered sign on the overpass:

Iraqi Veterans for Peace.

That's new. I am hoping that this builds and that somebody with some past knowledge of vets protesting (and you kow who you are) will take the time out to meet with these guys. Sigh! That would be nice.

2. I read somewhere
a while back that the founders of VAIW very much had JK in mind when they founded the group. Have you been to their website? It really takes me back. www.vaiw.org

The Veterans for Peace have their own site http://www.veteransforpeace.org/,
but each website mentions the other.

Another flashback for me today. I was driving to Costco (buying blue :-)) and listening to music when I heard Phil Ochs singing "Cops of the World". Do you know that song? If not, check out the lyrics. They could have been written yesterday. http://www.asklyrics.com/display/Ochs_Phil/Cops_Of_The_...

A taste:

    You'd better wipe off that smile, boys
    Better wipe off that smile
    We'll spit through the streets of the cities we wreck
    And we'll find you a leader that you can't elect
    Those treaties we signed were a pain in the neck
    'Cause we're the Cops of the World, boys
    We're the Cops of the World

3. God blesses the Iraqi Veterans For Peace
Blessed indeed are the peacemakers.
Does JK know about them?
