The Capitol Times

The City Council has gone on record opposing a U.S. offensive against Iraq.

The council's action makes Madison the 16th city to pass a resolution opposing a pre-emptive strike on Iraq, according to a mayoral assistant in Santa Cruz, Calif., which passed a similar resolution in late September.

Ron Schneider, assistant to Santa Cruz Mayor Christopher Krohn, said in a telephone interview Tuesday night that Baltimore, Md., and St. Petersburg, Fla., will be voting on anti-war resolutions Thursday.

That's odd. The central Bill of Rights Defense Committee


still only lists fourteen. Where'd they get the number 16 from?

A More Careful Reader

You're confusing resolutions against the USA-PATRIOT Act with resolutions against war on Iraq -- but hey, that's understandable since Madison has passed ONE OF EACH in the last five weeks! Go Madison!
