One of my new friends is a blogger: dada2you. His site is super anti-war, anti-Bush, anti-this administration. See photos (and look for Paul and the back of my head featured January 12 on his blog!)
We had two rallys this week, since there was an extra super duper one Saturday in conjunction with the big rally in Washington DC. Paul and I flashed by on the local El Paso TV coverage of the event; and tho I was ready with my camera, our moment of fame was too fleeting to catch, so my photo shows the guy after us
A few years ago, Paul and I flew to San Diego during spring break and took part in a border awareness immersion day with Maryknoll lay missioners Dick and Nancy. It caught us by surprise that they were in town for a Maryknoll meeting, and...there was Nancy, demonstrating across the street from us! A nice reunion ensued since she remembered us from that day that awakened in me a realization that you don't have to fly to Guatemala or Bolivia to encounter "Third World" poverty.
