MARCHING TO SHIBBOLETH: Norbizness parses the news about Rummy's latest folly.
"The Pentagon would hold a massive march and country music concert to mark the fourth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said in an announcement tucked into an Iraq war briefing today."

I think that this entirely appropriate, as one of bin Laden's biggest grievances against the West was the increasing blandness and homogenization of the sound of modern country music. ...

"The march will start at the Pentagon, where nearly 200 people died on September 11, 2001, and end at the National Mall with a show by country star Clint Black."

All proceeds from the event will go to buying millions of copies of Jackie DeShannon's "Put a Little Love In Your Heart" to drop on the enemy forces in Iraq. In addition, all attendees will get their choice of (1) magnetic ribbons or (2) prayer cloths for physically or mentally injured veterans. Body armor and Haldol are inventions of Satan, after all.
Read it all at "I Love a Parade!". (Found at Daily Pepper.)
