March on Trenton 

Fausta, along with the Trenton Times, wants to know "where's the outrage?" You want Jim McGreevey out before the magic date of no return, September 3? You want an actual opportunity to vote on the state's chief executive? It annoys you to no end that Afghanistan and Iraq are going to have national balloting before you have a chance to whack at the next crony installed in Drumthwacket? Then go here, and start pumping out crank calls, witty but rage-filled missives, and faxes 'till the cows come home. I myself plan to devote a chunk of my Adirondack holiday to doing just that.

My hopes aren't high -- how hard can it be to hold off the angry mob for another nine days? But he isn't going to leave in time if we don't start pushing.

And by the way, lengthy and noisy demonstrations outside Drumthwacket complete with offensive yet constitutionally protected signs, banners and "Hey, Hey" chanting would go a long way toward hounding Jim McGreevey out of office -- a worthy goal in and of itself -- and loosening up Princeton, which hasn't seen a good demonstration in years.

UPDATE (8-26-04 9:20 a.m. EDT): Go here to learn more about the March on Trenton today at 3 p.m. I wish I could be there, if for no other reason than to thank the organizer, Derek Lucas.
