The Brilliance Of Anti-War Thought

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune notes that anti-war activists protested the Iraq War in front of the Walker Community Library this afternoon, despite a lack of evidence that the library had any overt involvement in the conflict. Nevertheless, the protestors demanded an end to a war that has already ended with the typically deep philosophical thought that goes into these demonstrations:

Demonstrators carried banners, flags and signs that read "War sucks" and "Starve the war" as they used chalk to draw peace symbols and footprints on the sidewalk, listened to passionate speakers and passed out fliers announcing upcoming local anti-war events ... Several motorists honked their horns in approval as they drove by on Hennepin Avenue.

War sucks? How come no one told me that before? Well, that's an entirely different kettle of fish. And you have to love the news that "several people" honked their horns during the 90-minute demonstration. It's Hennepin Avenue -- if several people hadn't honked their horns in 90 minutes, that would be news, folks.
