Friday follies

What better way to spend a lunch hour watching a protest in front of the American Enterprise Institute, around the corner from the office at M and 17th Street. At a confererence inside, hawks chicken and otherwise issued a report calling for the deployment of a "large and sustained surge" of U.S. troops to Iraq. Senators John McCain and Joe Lieberman were among the headliners appearing in support of the report.

Outside, several hundred people at the protest organized by MoveOn. Must have been a few hundred people walking in a light drizzle. They chanted:
John McCain, John McCain
Escalation is insane
John and Joe, John and Joe
Escalation's not the way to go
As people mill about, they were joined by a chorus of LaRouche supporters. Wait, what?

That's the National Geographic building across the street. And who should I run into but my friend, The Architect?
