Speaking of the racist North ...
... the New York Post's disgusting cartoon yesterday equating President Obama with a monkey has ignited rage against the reactionary Murdoch rag. Today at noon there was a protest at the Post's offices in midtown Manhattan, called by City Councilmember Charles Barron of Brooklyn. There was no way I could get there and back to work on my lunch hour, but I've heard from some folks who did go that it was big and spirited, and that nobody is backing away from the anger. This isn't going to go away. Another protest may be in the offing soon.
