Bombing For Peace

Only a few days after Gina's Hollywood adventure, the same exact streets were transformed for an anti-war rally. Or maybe it was a peace rally. I forget.

Thousands of people marched from Hollywood and Vine to Hollywood and Highland, where they listened to speakers, and watched some musical acts. A handful of really confused-looking tourists were mixed in amongst the crowd. Lucky for them, a lot of the costumed characters were still out in force, posing for pictures.
Stormtroopers...


Batmen...


Jackson Brownes...

...and Spidermen.
Bush, are you listening? Even Spiderman hates you!

People in the crowd were genuinely moved. Some of them were also excited about St. Patrick's Day, and made their children wear ties and vests.




A lot of artists seized the opportunity to make a visual statement.


I think each casket symbolizes a US citizen who suffered through Wild Hogs at El Capitan.

"Let's Start the War on Hippies!" I found this genius in front of a bar a few blocks away from the rally. He was telling a security guard how "these stupid anti-war people are the first ones who will punch you in the face for no reason."
This guy's "invisible sign" is a lot cooler:

And I really, really prefer this girl's sign:

I want a casket for having been forced to watch Sister Act 2 under duress!
