Yesterday, Polk County Citizens for Peace and Justice sponsored a rally against the war in Iraq. They were in front of Southgate. I stopped by as it started, and though the crowd was sparse, the "honk for peace" sign generated some noise. The protest marked the fourth anniversary of the entry into Iraq by American troops.
This man was in the opposite corner of the parking lot with his own silent statement. As I took his photo he mentioned he had spoken with the protesters and they were "nice people."
