Democracy Now is doing daily coverage all this week. Actually they were going over the statistics today: no coverage in the corporate media. None on the cable news networks and the only paper to cover it was the Washington Post, under the local section.

there a group called "a gatehering of eagles" who are genuine thugs. i'd like to see a donnybrook between them and some antiwar marines, who would of course win. i wonder if that would make the news.
