|As some of you may know. Like last year. I was planning on renting a kilt, and going to McCarthyís St Paddyís day party. But Iím afraid Iím going to have to amend that, because St Paddyís day conflicts with a huge impeach Bush demonstration in Washington, which I will be attending instead. Hey, maybe Iíll wear the kilt to that?|
The march on the Pentagon Saturday for me was a little disappointing, at least as far as the turnout was concernedÖ Iím sure it was lower then I'd had hoped for, because of the sleet storm in the North East corridor. I my self almost didnít go, based on the icy conditions on my own street, but once we got on the NJT, it was pretty much clear sailing to and from Washington.
Unlike the demonstration I went to in January, there seemed to be a lot more young people at this one, and there was also a large contingent of, ďright wing neo-fascistís biker type,Ē apposing us. But, fortunately it didnít get out of hand, although I must admit that I was itching for a fight, since I believe that itís going to come to that anyway. You know it wouldnít surprise me at all, if the biker boys werenít just mercenaries, being paid by this administration. Not that I have anything against bikers in general, I use to be one myself.
Iím sorry to say that I didnít wear a kilt, or a Hockey helmet to the demonstration, but none the less, I glad I went! Anyway, I hope you all had a good St Paddies day.
