Lunch is Overrated Anyway
Feeling feisty? Head down to theMecom Fountain
(Main and Montrose) at noon today to joinAmnesty International
for a protest to mark the fifth anniversary of the first arrival of detainees atGitmo
We're all for civil disobedience, but we do have to wonder: Why are these kinds of things always scheduled in the middle of weekdays?
