Operation Pentagon Patriots…and more…

A few quick links, here. Captain Ed, responding to an email from a military man tired of seeing protestors at the Pentagon has arranged for an answering demo on Monday, with some help from the Protest Warriors and The Pink Flamingo Bar and Grille. Sounds groovy, and count on Ed to come up with it.
