I just talked to the vice president for membership from NOW, Latifa Lyles. She said the turnout is “part of a mounting campaign.” I stopped her there and asked about this protest and if NOW is the only group there. She acknowledged it is. They were calling on other organizations to join them, but the larger groups “are now strategizing. As for us, we just had to hit the streets to make our presence known.”
I asked her about the prolifers lined up, who number about 30 (to NOW’s 15 to 17 gals, one guy), and she said, “I think it’s ironic. Over the last couple of months, they seemed to get their way in stacking the courts with anti-choice judges … We’re in a position to protest because we haven’t been able to do so [getting their judges on the court]. We came out to urge for our core Constitutional rights.”
Would you say that the spectrum your group covers is also forÂ abortion on demand? “Yes, absolutely.”
And at 5 p.m., they’re clearing out. The prolifers are still here. No changing ships. Now they’re praying together.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
