My good friend Andy McQuery (a professional Opera singer living in New York City) had some interesting comments via email to our circle of friends about the current situation with Iraq and the huge protest in NYC on last Friday. There was a HUGE protest (they are saying as many as half a million people) and it seems to have been downplayed by the media. I'm not particularly a warblogger or even a big protester, but it's become clear to me that we all have to step out of our comfort zones.
With Andy's permission, I've reprinted his story about what really happened in New York on Feb 15th, 2003. I recommend you read it, and if you appreciate it, spread the link. You can use the link above or this email-convenient url: http://tinyurl.com/5y06
Added Note To those interested: This blog is my life, my diary, my journal, whether it's read by the public or not. As with my recent post on Multi-Lingual Children and other non-computer-related posts, I will post what I find interesting. 90% of the time it will be "Computer Zen" related topics. Hopefully you'll appreciate the signal-to-noise ratio at that level. For what it's worth, I'm not planning on using this blog as a political soap box.
On this note, check out Keith's recent war-related post: Floor speech by Senator Robert Byrd. A brilliant articulation of how I feel. [KeithBa's Blog]
