On the Ground in D.C.

Posted by on September 22 at 15:11 PM

News from my buddy Shawna, who became a Seattle-to-D.C. transplant a year ago:

That “money for the poor not the war” slogan is plastered ALL OVER D.C. Very unfortunate.

This is the first protest since I’ve been here, though, that it is actually large enough for people to shed that “I’m too cool to protest” feeling, at least among the folks I hang out with. I went to a show last night, just a regular ol rawk show with people of all ages and backgrounds, and EVERYONE was talking about it positively. It gets ya all fired up, ya know?
