Peace Now

Dick had a little trouble when he started to speak here in the scrappy little town of Knoxville yesterday.

Protesters shouted and held up a banner during Vice President Dick Cheney's speech in Knoxville today.

Cheney was speaking at the groundbreaking for the Howard Baker Center for Public Policy at the University of Tennessee.

About a half-dozen peace protesters shouted, "War, what is it good for?" They unfurled a banner reading "Peace Now."

Cheney continued speaking and didn't acknowledge the protesters, who were escorted out of Thompson-Boling arena.

Way to go guys!!! It did not make matters worse.

"Dick, what is it good for?"

Have a good day.

My stepdad called and asked if I was one of the protesters, I disappointingly said 'no'.
man, he does look so souless doesn't he? talk about being spiritually bankrupt.

Knoxville made me proud! It was just as exciting in the 'free speech zone'. Photos here:
