Well, sadly no news on the doves. The nest has been empty for over 24 hours, and each parent has returned only briefly, to stare intently at the nest, then fly away.
Here's a story on the Drunken Stunt on Bridge Rattles a Keyed-Up City. I have to say I feel sorry for the guys; but more importantly it made me think a lot about the limitations on the types of protests regarding this war - as I immediately wondered when first hearing the news that maybe someone was trying to put up a banner on the bridge - quite risky in this climate.
-- meanwhile, I am off to work, while another Peace March gathers in Times Square (at 11am) to march down Broadway to Union Square.
