Live 5 has report on an Iraq War protest in Marion Square, one acknowledging the fifth anniversary of the invasion. Go to the video clip and witness the tepid outrage for yourself. This one exchange stood out:
"When you see wrong, you speak out against wrong. You speak out for right,” said O’Fish, who spoke out along with a dozen other people.

My neighborhood is too small for twice-daily walks and/or runs with my Jack Russell terrier, Ozzie. So I venture in all directions beyond the periphery, behind supermarkets, shopping centers, through apartment parking lots and nearby subdivisions, and down a utility easement that some people call a "greenway." That might sound unappealing, but I find it to be satisfying.
