Wednesday nights are pot luck dinner at the house and this place draws and impressive crowd. Pinkers invite anyone curious about the organization, neighbors and anyone sharing in a quest for peace. The food is always good and the company is harmonious and interesting.
This is Start. He's the coolest guy on the planet. Dropped out of the workaday corporate world to come here everyday and protest the illegal invasion of Iraq. He's plugged in and turned on. A gentle soul, he is.
We sat in on two hearings. The first was the D. O. J. oversight. As soon as the CodePinkers down, Conyers came over to give us a fair warning. Either we behave or we'll be invited to leave ;-)
Later we sat in on a hearing of the progress in Iraq. There were several witnesses but the key witness was former Iraqi Prime Minster Allawi.
