BILL HERBERT HAS SOME PHOTOS from various peace marches. My favorite one is of a sign that must have been smuggled in: “Save the Iraqi People: Kill Saddam.”

UPDATE: Here’s a contrast between now and then in DC:

My point? We will forever remember the 1963 March on Washington because in holding and maintaining the moral high ground, they won their argument. Of course, this implies having the moral high ground in the first place. A lesson seemingly lost on this current generation of spoiled brats who’s only legacy will be sophomoric boast of “dude, remember when we shut down D.C.?” … Big deal, so do ice storms and budget battles.

The Left has lived off the moral capital of the civil rights era for decades, but that’s pretty much over now, except in their own minds.
