Ghandi on winning….

February 8, 2003

From my brother the Tyromaniac:

First, they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win.
– Mahatma Ghandi

I sure hope Ghandi knew what he was talking about….we are in “they are fighting us” stage here…..

We should emulate Central Park protest

February 8, 2003

I think Venezuelans should emulate the Central Park protest yesterday where 30 naked women wrote out the word “Bush” with their bodies on the snow

We have a number of advantages. First of all it is warm. Second there are so many women protesters we could probably write out the Constitution with their bodies on Caracas’ highways. Third they are very pretty so the country will, once again, come to a standstill.  I also propose men participate. This might not get rid of Chavez, but it will be a lot of fun for all and will make a lot of Chavista men switch sides in envy. I am sure the Vice-President will say the women were ugly, nobody enjoyed it and it never took place anyway. 

(This type of protest is catching on, I already reported on a similar one in San Francisco, where the word peace was written out by 50 naked women)
