Huge anti-war rally on Boston Common...

I've just returned from a huge anti-war rally on the Boston Common. The energy was unbelievable! It seemed as if the whole progressive movement was represented. I was particularly impressed with the labor union representation. And of course there was a tremendous number of students participating. Nobody seemed to notice the occasional shower.

A word of congratulations to the organizers. I attended a number of anti-war demonstrations in the late 1960's and early 1970's and today's rally on the Boston Common matched the energy of any of those rallies.
