Well, I guess that all depends on what the question is, doesn’t it? Sort of odd seeing that the day after Iraqis voted freely, thanks to war. Conflict, including war, is not inherently evil. It is the results by which you must judge something. War to defend the defenseless, free the slaves, or prevent evil is right and just, even as it is sorrowful and costly. Just read a bit about the good stuff happening in Iraq and you can see that through destruction can come new growth, and through sorrow and death, a lasting legacy of freedom.

Protest of the Day
This morning the score was 8 protesters to 1 protest warrior…and 30 cops. No one was directing traffic, which is usually a good thing here, but today it was not. It took about 20 minutes to get from the line on 395 to the metro entrance. Grrrr. Anyway, there were some new faces, though the bald monk was not there. I miss his drum. Mostly the same bunch of signs, but one that I have not seen in a while was notable:
War is not the Answer!
