Public service announcement

To all of those anti-war elementary school teachers in Maine who felt compelled to impart their "wisdom" concerning the impending war in Iraq to the children of our military personnel:
Save your political fulminations for your moral, ethical, and intellectual peers.
Providing, of course, that you can find any snakes, slugs, or toads willing to remain in your recto-cranially-inverted presence once they've gotten a whiff of the gas you've been passing along to the kiddies.

Crunching the numbers.

Estimated number of participants in local antiwar rally last weekend: 10,000

Population of Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill Metropolitan Statistical Area (2000 U.S. census records): 1,187,941

Protestors as percentage of local population: 0.84179 % or 8.4 protestors per thousand residents

Can I stop being impressed with how many people gathered to protest the war now?
