The people, too, are not in favour. Hundreds of protest events took place across the United States today in response to Bush's speech. I joined a group of 50 or so people tonight on Berkeley's pedestrian bridge over I-80, and returned just now.
Here's the view from the freeway. Tonight's discovery: you can make a pretty effective sign in just a few minutes using 2-foot-by-2.5-foot Post-It sheets and a roll of black duct tape.
The reaction from drivers was more enthusiastic than i expected. We heard nearly continuous honking from the thousands of cars passing under us for the couple of hours that we were there.
