I also remembered that I didn't have the best of times at the protests in Raleigh or Washington DC (to clarify — the people and the marches themselves were fine, but most of the speakers decided that they'd rather indulge in conspiracy theories and outrageous claims than actually talking about the war itself), so I'd probably come back feeling depressed about my contribution to the world at large. Instead, I shall stay at home and work on my world domination plans… (I have a no-gnome policy already fleshed out)

Waiting on Tenterhooks
Not going to the protest tomorrow. As Matt rightly says, the march is going to be kept firmly away from the President and his entourage, so there's little point. The niggling feeling that people are looking for an excuse to re-enact Chicago 1968 didn't help, but the main reason I suppose I'm not going is because the protest itself seems flawed somehow. Is it just so people can say "Go away, we don't like you"? Isn't it a bit late to protest against the War in Iraq? Can't we have something a little more constructive?
