The wisdom of age

A group of war protesters called the "Raging Grannies of Tucson" were arrested outside of a military recruiting center in Arizona.
The group, mostly women in their 60s and 70s, said they wanted to go to Iraq so their grandchildren could come home.
How unspeakably apt. If only our leaders valued our future to the same degree.

Update: Bitch PhD posts the Grannies' statement of their motives and their hopes.
The Raging Grannies are angry about the U.S. maintaining a Permanent War Economy, using military might as the U.S.'s primary tool of Foreign Policy.
Man, if my granny weren't nearing 100, I'd hope she was just this mad. Heck, let's all get angry without waiting to become grandparents...
