Tales of two GREAT cities

First, I read this about Berkeley, where I used to live for over 20 years: the City Council sent a letter to a Marines Recruiting Station which had opened last year, and informed them that they were unwanted intruders in their community. I’m so proud of them for taking such a strong anti-war stance. Recruiting stations should have signs similar to the ones on cigarette packs: “Warning — may be hazardous to your life” or something like that.

The other story takes us to Brattleboro, Vermont: on March 4, its “residents will vote at town meeting on whether President George Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney should be indicted and arrested for war crimes, perjury or obstruction of justice if they ever step foot in Vermont” (from the Rutland, Vermont, Herald). Even some members of the local police department signed the petition that put the initiative on the ballot. Apparently, some other towns are following suit.

Way to go, Berkeley and Brattleboro!
