C-SPAN to broadcast Saturday's March on the Pentagon

From C-SPAN's front page:

Of course this is just a Tivo alert - you should be at the demo, or at a demo in your nearest city, not watching TV at 2 pm Eastern/11 am Pacific. For those who are going to tape this, like me, the C-SPAN schedule lists its duration as 2 1/2 hours, but the next scheduled program isn't until 4 hours later.

And here's a long article in today's Washington Post on tomorrow's demo.

On the subject of demonstrations, I read a long post recently on another blog, and listened to a long discussion on radio, about how they "don't do any good." I was going to write a long post on the subject, but I don't have time. Instead, I'll just pose a simple question: imagine what it would be like if there were no demonstrations? Do you really think the politicians in Washington would treat the opposition to the war nearly as seriously if all we ever did was stay home and write letters to our Congresspeople? Well, perhaps you do. I sure don't. Just think of the commentary on all the TV talk shows if there were no demonstrations this weekend. They may not have much (or anything) to say about the demonstrations that are going to occur, but you can bet they'd be pronouncing the death of antiwar sentiment in this country if there weren't any demos.

Stand up. Speak out. Just say NO!
