A few pics for those wanting to know the mood in Manhattan today:
a couple en route to the protest get encouragement from the street sweeper – 6th Ave, Brooklyn
Union Square: the never-ending drum circle for peace (bring your own cowbell)
they were selling anti-Bush baby outfits; his shirt reads “My Dick Would Pull Out of Iraq”
just by standing in one place, we ran into eight different people from UNC – randomly – including my former Pink House roommates Jay Murray, Allen Sellars and N’Gai Wright. Also Celeste. And several other people who only recognized us from campus years ago. How bizarre is THAT?
this has been Tessa and Ian reporting from Manhattan, where George Washington still holds ballons of peace. Back to you in the booth
