For those complaining about news coverage....
Advertisements [?]
Some of you won't appreciate my comments in which case flame away or go away but here's the deal...

There are between 2 and 3 million people displaced from their homes in this country at this time. Its like a really, really serious matter to displace this many people in the short space of three weeks. We have lost a big chunk of our energy source and the gulf coast is a shambles.

The fact that the media is not covering an anti-war demonstration in D.C. of a half a million people to your satisfaction does not mean that you are being ignored.

People are often asking what the difference is between the demo's of the days of VietNam and today's protests re: Iraq. So what is the decided difference that I note today?

People in that day DID NOT WHINE! Think about it...

Thank you
