Deja Vu All Over Again
Iraq really is the new Vietnam.
Joan Baez Performs at War Protest Near Bush Ranch
About 500 people gathered to hear her on a 1-acre lot offered by a landowner who opposes the war. Not far away, protesters continued a camp-out started by grieving mother Cindy Sheehan.Has anyone heard how Cindy's mom is doing? I know the repubs are hoping the movement will just fizzle while she takes care of family problems. Am certain Rove has been doing his incantations to make this so.
Baez said a movement like this was waiting to happen.
"It was the final tear for the overflow and you can't stop running water," she said. "Cindy's was the final tear."
Out painting at the harbor all day, but ended up with something that just looks pasty to me. May let it dry and then saw off the top part. Won't show it to you yet.
Thought I got a good spot in the shade, but ended in full, blistering sun for too long, so ended up rushing things -- never a good thing for me. So threw paint on the board so the water looks too generic. Will try again tomorrow, since is supposed to be clear and cool again.
