Rally in Hyde Park! An

Rally in Hyde Park!

An article by an anti-war advocate in the Guardian shows why that paper is worth skimming for a chuckle now and then. Listen to this breathless Haight-Ashbury hyperbole regarding an anti-war protest scheduled for this Saturday:

"The eyes and ears of the world will be fixed on the London streets and on Hyde Park. The size and fury of the demonstration will have an impact on real events the like of which I have not experienced in a lifetime of protest. Hyde Park will once again host a demonstration, like that of the Reform League in 1867 or the suffragettes in 1908, that can change the whole course of politics. Go to it."

Oh my, and I thought my only concern about my return to London tomorrow was regarding the British Army tanks and troops at Heathrow defending against a possible missile attack on an incoming plane there.
