Mission Incomprehensible

Abby Zimet

Following protests in Saskatoon and Edmonton, hundreds of people threw
shoes, shouted "Terrorist!" and burned him in effigy as George Bush
spoke Thursday in Montreal.  Appearing at the hotel where John Lennon
recorded "Give Peace A Chance," Bush defended his disastrous policies -
"I did not sell my soul" - but admitted, "I spend a lot of time
thinking about Katrina." Oh yeah, and there was that banner on a ship.
He said he also regretted appearing in front of "the Mission
Impossible" sign.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
