Oh Say Can You See?

There were 100, 000 demonstrating on the streets of San Jose yesterday. The papers are saying 400 000 in LA but a guy from ANSWER who was unlucky enough to have to go on some dreadful right wing nbc talk show was saying a million. 400,000 in Chicago. One of the topics on that show was the controversy over that fact that someone has created a Spanish language version of the US national anthem. And the right are complaining about that. I would think they would be happy that anyone wants to show their 'patriotism'. Interesting in that it means different things to both sides. The immigrant movement want to say 'this is our country too'- quite rightly. The right wants to keep everything in English...to exclude latinos and other non-white immigrants.
