THAT'S WHY THEY CALL IT LSD: Proving once again that few things turn people against a cause quite as effectively as the shutting down of a major city, 2500 protestors blocked traffic on Chicago's Lake Shore Drive today, in a rally that was timed to coincide with rush hour. Because nothing stops a war quite like preventing people from getting home to their families- do these organizations actually expect average Chicagoans to respond positively to such major inconvenience?
In a scene right out of "Falling Down," one woman even got out of her car in the traffic jam in order to get into a scuffle with a teenage anti-war protestor.
