Fight the power with your talking dog

For those of you in the New York area, you might want to consider joining me and a few hundred of our friends at a Bill of Rights reading/protest of NSA internal spying etc. sponsored by Move-On.Org; tonight’s protest is 6 pm, at Federal Hall on Wall Street, sight of President George Washington’s first inauguration, on this, President Washington’s natural birthday.
Be there. Aloha.
Update: Maybe around 200 people showed up for the 20-25 minute protest, mostly upscale looking, mostly older than me (and I ain’t so young); Move-On was kind enough to provide many with signs (“Bush broke the law”; “Stop illegal wiretaps”) candles and copies of the bill of rights, which were read in (attempted) synchronous chorus. (Your talking dog’s own hand-made sign had two parts; the larger part said “Stop illegal wiretaps now,” and the other side said “Extremism in defense of liberty is no vice, and moderation in pursuit of justice is no virtue,” a quote from one of my favorite left-wing nuts, the late Barry Goldwater.)
