On the off chance that you're both planning to attend the protest/march/concert/whathaveyou tomorrow morning in D.C., and you're reading this right now... it would be nice to be able to spot you tomorrow so that it would be easier to exchange hellos without resorting to brute force.

So, I'll be the one under the futura white-on-black sign that reads "war is failure."

See you there.

There'll be a meetup in DC on Sunday at 6:30pm at Brickskeller in Dupont Circle. Come, if you're still in town.

Futura? Sorry, I'm pretty sure we'll never meet.

(Note: that's a non-fontophile's attempt at a fontophile joke. I won't be there, but I'm glad you will be. March on, brother.)

march for me too--for all of us--don't ever forget that the majority of Americans want us out of Iraq.

It's not a bug, it's a feature.

I plan to wander the Mall with my camera. I'll be on the lookout for your sign, odinsdream.

March for 63 percent of the people.

you'd prefer to march for the other (maybe) 47%? Respect those with the courage of their convictions, my freind.

Ther was very little chance of picking someone out from their sign. That thing was HUGE and beautiful.

Sorry I couldn't make it--I just got back from the wedding of NortonDC and onlyconnect. It was lovely, and they did, in fact, have cameras.

Pics? Dude, it was NortonDC. Sadly, my usb cable is at the office, so I can't upload mine until Monday.

Doesn't look like I'm in any of your shots. Here's a quick dump of my pictures from the event, no editing or cropping done yet, that'll have to wait until I'm back home. If you want any higher resolution copies, just email me.

The last count I heard was 300,000.

Hey, what happened? I was at Brickskeller about 7:15pm and couldn't find anyone.
