Gimme Three Steps Mister

Five years and two months ago, UNC Tar Heel stood shoulder to shoulder with Duke Blue Devil, protesting Mr. Bush's then-upcoming war. It was seventeen degrees Fahrenheit, we were bundled to the nines, and a groovy older woman smiled to our left, holding a sign that read: "Attack on Iraq [Iran?] is for oil." In this snapshot, I'm in Carolina Blue and Joe McGeary's holding a Duke Blue sign -- NO WAR.

As for us, we're not taking any trips on the Titanic or the Hindenburg, we're not following General Custer anywhere, we're not getting in a car with Stephen Glass, we're not rallying for a final stand in the Führerbunker, we're not drinking the Flavorade with Jim Jones, we're not taking a bus down by the River, we're not following the Pied Piper into the Mountain, we're simply saying, NO.

Today's Rune: Movement.

Happy Spring, y'all!

Time has proven he still hasn't regained his hearing.

Too bad the protest didn't work, but, of course, he couldn't care less what the people think or want.

If only just saying "no" had any effect. <:(

Saying no always has some effect, if not now then later -- The No people can replace the Yes people, for instance. And in 2009, just might do so.

I won't even begin with the "No means No" rape analogies.
