Scene: Copley Square, Boston, last Saturday afternoon.

Point: A few hundred demonstrators, of various ages and descriptions (one carrying a sign proclaiming her a "grandmother against the war"), chanting such slogans as "Money for jobs and education, not for war and occupation", and "Support our troops, bring them home".

Counterpoint: About a half dozen teenage kids, most waving American flags, one carrying a sign advertising These guys had only one chant that I heard: "Traitors!".

It's good to see that in troubled times, the freepers still have their minds on what matters: not attacking Saddam, but attacking their fellow Americans.
