still making a fuss!

These are our children!

Activists demonstrated inside and outside of the UN General Assembly yesterday, where they shouted, "No war in Iraq!"

These good folks, knowingly or not, were following in the footsteps and the soundbites of generations of worthy progressive protestors and innovative interlopers, most notably and most recently those spawned by AIDS activism.

Until they close down the world altogether, activists will always find a way to speak.

But I suppose the NYTimes will also always find ways to distort the news and the message. What's with their gratuitious statement, "The protestors were apparently not armed or carrying any unusual items."?

One more humble question, this one for the City of New York: Why were six people arrested outside on the street, apparently only for speaking?
