Sorry Cindy, I'm Not Convinced


Cindy Sheehan Arrested in Protest Outside White House.

I'm sorry Cindy, but if you're looking for provocative ways to protest an unjust war, you'll have to think very hard before you can come up with something new. Getting arrested for sitting on a sidewalk will not make you a martyr. Unless you can find a way to top this:


you'll just be imitating the great protests of the 1960s. Better luck next time. Perhaps the anti-war advocates are waiting for the price of gas to go down before they try self-immolation.

Nice pic and comment on gas prices. People just don't know how to protest anymore (you may enjoy reading Abbie Hoffman's Steal This Book on this score, and to a lesser extent, the Fosterites in Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land).

well, gas prices have come down, but where the immolationists? Don't the protesters really believe in anything anymore?
