street theater for war mongers
by emma Sunday, Mar. 16, 2003 at 7:09 PM (email address validated)

support war? here's your draft card.

Today's anti-war demonstration marched past Carnegie Mellon University's fraternity houses, and Delta Upsilon made their political views known by nearly brawling with marchers. The frat house made signs like "More Bombs = Cheap Oil" and "I Drive an SUV."

Conflict didn't escalate into violence, but nobody was especially prepared with responses to entirely unintelligent statements.

Perhaps next time, we can get together a little street theater involving somebody wearing a cheap suit and carrying a brief case. When someone screams to nuke Iraq, we'll hand 'em a quality (fake) draft card and suggest that they go themselves.

[of course followed by an in-depth and intelligent discussion of the consequences of war, eh?]
