78 Arrested at Big Hollywoo...

78 Arrested at Big Hollywood Rally: Anti-war protesters shut down parts of Hollywood Blvd., marched to the CNN Building and hurled insults, and promised a big show for the Oscars.

Tons of anti-war yard signs around the neighborhood, and lots of American flags, too. UPDATE: Lonewacko was there, and covered it. UPDATE II: Bob Morris, who is more sympathetic, allegedly has coverage on his site, though I haven't been able to read it in weeks (just like the LA Weekly, weirdly).

My report and pics on this protest are at lonewacko.com/blog/archives/000368.html.

"Yesterday's protest was an exercise in many things: vanity, condescension, evasion, arrogance, and smug self-righteousness. But it failed miserably as an effort at persuasion. This should come as no surprise to those of us who recognize that war is tragic, but who also know that life under tyranny, or life overshadowed by the danger of apocalyptic slaughter, is more tragic still."

This from a Harvard senior recording his thoughts on campus activities in "consciousness raising."

As far as I can tell, his assessment felicitously applies to all of these assorted studies in herd-mentality grievance mongering.
