succumbing to peer pressure

Thursday, April 22, 2004

The woman who took the photograph linked to in my previous post has been fired (as predicted by atrios and others at his site). The Seattle Times article says, "Silicio was let go yesterday for violating U.S. government and company regulations." Somewhat weirdly, the article also states, "Maytag also fired David Landry, a co-worker who recently wed Silicio," but doesn't provide a reason why he was fired too. Anyway, I don't have any coherent thoughts on this, other than it's so obviously wrong. Tom Tomorrow points to the article too, as well as too examples of comics covering the war. Go check 'em out.

In other news, the March for Women's Lives was mentioned in the NY Times this morning. I'm not bothering to link to the article, because it isn't very good, but I suppose any publicity is good publicity. If you can't make it to DC, but still want to show your support, find out if local organizations are throwing bus send off parties this weekend and go cheer them on. Or go here and send a message to a marcher. Naral is collecting stories and messages to post in their action center and around other places for marchers to see them.
