A22 - The "Bush Protest"

I noticed something interesting tonight. If you do a search in google for "bush protest" the first hit is the A22 Portland Bush Protest page on Portland Indymedia.
I can't help but feel strangely inspired by the fact that the A22 protest is considered the "bush protest". And for anyone that doesn't know how google works if you hit the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button the search engine takes you to the first hit. So, if you were to go to google.com and type:
bush protest
-or-
"bush protest"
and hit "I'm Feeling Lucky" you would end up at the Portland Indymedia A22 page.

 http://www.google.com/search?q=bush+protest
 http://www.google.com/search?q=%22bush+protest%22

Strangely, "protest bush" returns Houston Indymedia first.

It also turns out that "forest activism" also goes to the Portland Indymedia Forest Defense page.

 http://www.google.com/search?q=%22forest+activism%22

These are stretching it a little more because they're longer, and I suppose you could find many things due to their page titles. Still I thought these were cute:
portland police state:  http://www.google.com/search?q=portland+police+state
kendra james justice:  http://www.google.com/search?q=kendra+james+justice
lars larson lies:  http://www.google.com/search?q=lars+larson+lies

Ok, that's enough geekery for me for one night.

Little Stone

George Bush is a Christian who does not understand his own beliefs. Many of his acts reflect practices of the Christian nemesis Satan. Why? I suspect the old fellow reverted to business as usual once converted. Beau Geste was a French foreign legionaire who held the Sarcens at bay by running around firing the weapons of his dead compatriots. Let's consider Bush a 'dead' Christian, treat him with compassion, as we would a dead body. His handlers do not have eminent domain. Perhaps some among us can usurp that privelege and persuade Bush to expose his handlers so that real effective action can take place.
