Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels across country in my mobile billboard truck as I attempt to engage in dialogue with people in hopes to wake us up and inspire action to change our country and communities and selves. And it is froth with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society and life we want

Fabulous media coverage

We bid adieu around 2:00p.m. to the dusty feathers - smattering of pigeons, as Medea would say - as they swooshed back to their nests in the nether parts of small-minded California this past Wednesday. The ugliness and hatred that characterised most of their faces was difficult and terribly sad to witness as the predominantly white and male with a scattering of several well-dressed & make-up caked faced women counter-protestors screamed obscenities and made lewd gestures.

But folks who are willing to kill to get what they want are not know for the ability to reason let alone communicate non-violently.

We got GREAT press coverage with several stations linking our story with the 'news' that Bush intends to call up an additional 8 units of our National Guard members soon. There are more U.S. soldiers fighting in Iraq now then ever before. Remember, Bush stated in the spring that he intends to have 200,000 U.S. troops in Iraq by December of 2006.

Here are several of the news links:
