Micahel Moore's Bowling for Columbine is up for an Academy Award for Best Documentary. But, according to Academy rules it's not actually a documentary!

The walk-out is on here at Brandeis. I didn't make it up the 53 steps to the main quad where it was being held‚ but from the bottom you can hear them chanting‚ "What do we want? Peace! When do we want it? Now!"

The table set up by United We Stand with support ribbons and petitions had a crowd around it both times I stopped by and I've definitely seen more people wearing ribbons than I expected. It's so great to actually see diversity of opinion on this here!

Okay, I know I made a post last week pointing to a new Brandeis blog Brandeis Vanguard and explaining my long absence from posting, but for some reason it's no longer here. And the fact that I didn't notice for several days may tell you something about my busy schedule. So here's a quick make-up post for that being gone.

So my newly purchased TV has been put to good use switching back and forth between CNN and Fox News every morning. And today they keep emphasizing the 'countdown'. 'Countdown: 33 hours' flashes along the bottom of the screen. It makes me feel like tommorrow night we're all going to crowd around the TV and count '5-4-3-2-1' and watch the bombs fall down on Baghdad.
