Protesting Up Eighth Avenue

As I was finishing my chicken sandwich with bacon and swiss a protest began to emerge up Eighth Avenue. I watched for a bit and was fairly unimpressed. There were a lot of people, but there seemed to be very little cohesion. Yes, I understand that they were all against Bush, but as with most protests I've seen, people were holding up signs for everything and its mother. Anyway, the most creative sign had to go to a Jewish group against Bush, which read:

The last time the Jews followed a Bush we spent 40 years in the desert!

That made me laugh.

Here's a link to some photos of the march on Kottke.org
