Is Kerry better than Bush on the environment?
The environmental movement bears very little relationship to the "major environmental groups". The big groups, aka Gang Green, function politically as little more than green front for the Democratic Party.

I don't know the cause of the fire, whether set intentionally as part of a protest or accidentally.

March for Womens Lives
Today, starting in Brooklyn, a March for Womens Lives was scheduled, the plan was to march across the Brooklyn Bridge to make sure that issues of reproductive health?global family planning, real sex education, accessible, safe and legal abortion, birth control options, the right to privacy regarding sexuality, and equal access to health care?are part of the national political dialogue.

Around 1pm today speakers started at Candon park in Brooklyn, the rally started small with just over 500 protesters and only about 70 police officers. There didnt seem to be much tension, with many of the cops being on bicycle. There were people there handing out water and Luna bars, to a very diverse crowd.

By 1:30, the march had begun and the crowd was up in the thousands, byt the time they started crossing the Brooklyn Bridge. Reports came in of as many as 16,000 marchers going over the bridge. By the time the march reached City Hall Park for the end rally, it was three hours into it. There were reports of good vibes and lots of support (in the form of honking) by the passing vehicles.

5000+ riders hit the streets for anti-RNC Critical Mass in NYC
NYC Indymedia reports: The first wave of posts on tonight's Critical Mass have come in. The ride was New York's largest critical mass, with well over 5,000 bikes.

Gathering at Union Square in the middle of Manhattan at 7 p.m. and departing at 7:30, oil-free transportation stretched across all horizons around Union Square. First pedaling south down Broadway and then rerouting north on Madison and Sixth avenues, Critical Mass consisted of a 45 block long brigade of cyclists, skaters and pedestrians. The ride lasted about 2 hours, performed its traditional occupation of Times Square and rode past Madison Square Garden (MSG), site of the RNC.

The Ugly American Comes Home to Roost
Over many decades the term "Ugly American" became known outside of the United States as a descriptive term for Americans traveling or working overseas. I first heard this term as a child when my father recommended to my old brother that he read a book by the same title. My brother, a child at the time, was interested in the foreign perception of Americans. He had followed closely the Vietnam war and was struggling to understand foreign sentiment towards Americans, which was largely negative.

Maybe it's just me, but this subversion of the 911 Truth Movement to support "regime rotation" seems to be reaching a nauseating pitch, what with the Republic National Conference coming up this weekend, and it will only continue through November, wittingly or unwittingly, unless we stop it. I'm speaking of activists being urged to hurry up and get the word out about Bush & 9/11 before November, so that Bush will lose some votes he otherwise would have gotten as if that matters.
