Abby Zimet

At a gathering at Whiteman Air Force Base to protest drone warfare, Missouri riot police turned up in fine lunatic form as a handful of grey-haired members of Trifecta Resista sang "Hallelujah" and three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee Kathy Kelly spoke softly of the language of indictment, the Wizard of Oz, and her hope that one day, in a world with too many guns, they could all work together. Not to be believed.
