RED STATERS MEET THE WORLD: SETTING THE STAGE!
When I arrive at Wengen this afternoon, to check the stage, it's already ringed by four sculptures. There's a triptych memorial to 9/11's terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, and a mural based on the famous World War II photo, of U.S. troops raising the flag at Iwo Jima-- but here, instead of raising the American flag, the soldiers are raising an oil rig. Nearby, a bronze robot is putting the finishing touches on another 9/11 memorial, featuring a battered hand emerging from the rubble. At the end of the event, I'm giving out prizes to political builds like these, in three categories: anti-Bush/pro-Kerry, anti-Kerry/pro-Bush, and Non-Partisan Current Events. Of course, in these partisan times, even deciding what qualifies as non-partisan can be a challenge.
"Hmm," I muse to Peredur Vindaloo, "does your peace sign tower count in the anti-Bush category, I guess?"
"Until Falluja," Vindaloo replies, heatedly, "I would have said no. Today I'm less neutral. To be honest, I will let the reds decide whether they wish peace signs to be on their side or the opposition." So she agrees to qualify her tower of peace symbols as anti-Bush.
In four and a half hours, I'm guessing that they'll be even less neutrality at that site. But hopefully more understanding, too.
