Somebody's Home?

I've seen this car parked in various places downtown for a little over a week now. There's never any time on the parking meter. And there's never a parking ticket on the dash. An exercise in futility perhaps? The car is so packed with newspapers and "stuff" that the only place you can sit--not that I'd want to--is in the driver's seat. No shortage of unusual sights in Spokane.

Anti-Abortion "Movement" in Spokane?

Lately I've noticed the odd person standing or walking about wearing black sweatshirts. One had "Abortion is Homicide" on the front and lots more on the back that I couldn't make out. Another had what appeared to be a drawing of a fetal skeleton and "Killed at Birth". I wonder if something is going on. I'll ask one when I have the opportunity.

The Patriot's Dream

I found a record a couple years ago that included a song entitled "The Patriot's Dream" by Arlo Guthrie. I never heard the song before--the 70's are such a blur--but I find it poignant, especially in our current times. I put images of the Iraq war together with the song. Be warned. This contains some very graphic images.
