Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

03/09/2005: Wish I could make it, myself.....

Just got this announcement in the email inbox. I pass it on for those of you who are politically sympathetic and who, unlike me, are not slaves to the Tyrrany of the Urgent (Ok, I'll fess up; Bush's craven cowardice and inability to brook dissent means that This Noble Effort is going to be shunted off to a "First Amendment Zone" miles away from The Imperial Presence, so I question its ultimate utility, too, but I do think the thought counts):

Subject: [mspjc-events] Bush in Memphis- Protest Friday


Hello All,

Pres. Bush has decided to grace our city with his presence of Friday March 11, at the Cannon Center. We are organizing a protest and action Friday morning starting at 7am in the parking lot of the High Point Pinch, 111 Jackson between N. Main St. and 2nd. This is shaping up to be a very large event, there are buses coming from Nashville and Jonesboro. It is vital that we let Pres. Bush know that Memphis is not in tune with his destructive policies as they relate to Social Security and a host of other issues. We hope to see you there, signs will be available upon arrival so all you need to bring is yourself.

What: Anti Privatization of Social Security Rally

When: Friday March 11, at 7am

Where: High Point Pinch Parking Lot, 111 Jackson

Who: Mid-South Peace and Justice Center, Democracy for Memphis, TN Citizen Action, AFL-CIO, Shelby County Democratic Party, and a wide array of faith, labor, and community groups.

If you can attend please let us know so we can plan accordingly. We also need volunteers to make calls and help get people out to this event in the next few days. If you can help please contact us.

In Peace,
Jacob Flowers
Executive Director,
Mid-South Peace and Justice Center
1000 S. Cooper
Memphis, TN 38104
