DC Friday - Rally for Denmark

Of all the times NOT to have a meeting in Crystal City.....
Thank you all who've written. Please be outside the Embassy of Denmark, 3200 Whitehaven Street (off Massachusetts Avenue) between noon and 1 p.m. this Friday, Feb. 24. Quietness and calm are the necessities, plus cheerful conversation. Danish flags are good, or posters reading "Stand By Denmark" and any variation on this theme (such as "Buy Carlsberg/ Havarti/ Lego") The response has been astonishing and I know that the Danes are appreciative. But they are an embassy and thus do not of course endorse or comment on any demonstration. Let us hope, however, to set a precedent for other cities and countries. Please pass on this message to friends and colleagues.
If you are going to be near D.C. tomorrow - you have a date.

Hitch gets major kudos for this. To bad it took a Brit to do the American thing.

Bravo Zulu, you old Trotskyite, you!

NB: Beer, cheese and children's toys not included.
