the heat's rising

Just wanted to say that I saw Fahrenheit 9/11 yesterday, at a 11:45am matinee show that was packed. Jerry does a good job of summing up my sentiments. I can't say that it didn't tell me much that I didn't already know, but it put it all together in a fashion that had me crying at the end.

And you should go listen to Ani's poem Self-Evident (under So Much Shouting/So Much Laughter) if you want even more perspective and righteous anger at the man who would be president.

One more thing: Check out this comic by Lalo Alcatraz. It's quickly becoming one of my favorite reads of the day.

The final quote from the movie:
There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on [long pause]-- shame on you. Fool me- [even longer pause, you can see the smoke coming out of his ears as the wheels turn faster]-- you can't get fooled again.
