An Inclusive Litany

10/22/01

Alice Walker, again. Berkeley's Daily Californian reports on a rally in support of Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), who cast the lone dissenting vote against military action, October 22, 2001:
Walker compared the U.S. government to her recent 10-day fast in Hawaii.

"Just as we need to examine the contents of our own colons, we need to examine the contents of our government," she said.

Be wary of the "stuff" the government is made of, the acclaimed author cautioned those in the crowd.

"If you swallow just one lie from the government, it will ruin your day," she said.
