All over. There's always one at South Coast Plaza; that's the one I go to. And there's one in Yorba Linda.Have the crowds been getting larger every week?
Oh, yes. You see a lot of support, and a lot of people were upset with what the Dixie Chicks said about Bush.The Dixie Chicks?
Yeah, one of the Dixie Chicks had a concert overseas, and she said she was disappointed that Bush was from Texas, too. It was very insulting, and so now people and radio stations are boycotting her music. They're even burning her CDs. I heard she apologized, but it's too late. They're coming home to do concerts, and there's going to be nobody there. You need to be behind our country now and what is right.So . . .
You have to understand that people are not against Iraq; they're against Hussein. They want to give freedom back to Iraq. Right now, it's being controlled by people that if you cross them, they'll destroy you. Can you imagine what kind of fear that is to live under?NAME WITHHELD, COSTA MESA
Right . . .But you didn't mention in there where the demonstrations will be.
Oh, I don't know.Well, are you going to one of the demonstrations?
No, I just got that from some [conservative organization], and I just sent it on. To be honest, I really didn't read the thing too close.So, you didn't read the part where you asked for France to be bombed?
Whaaat?!I'm just kidding.
That's not cool, dude. You had me scared.So, I can say that you're not for bombing France?
Right, I mean, no. . . . Are you writing this down?Well, yeah.
Oh, man, I don't know if I want to be quoted.But you wrote us a letter.
I told you I didn't write that. I barely read it.Still, you did send it to us.
[. . .]How about if I write about it, but don't use your name.
I guess that's cool. You wouldn't use my name at all? Okay. I just don't want to be quoted about something I really don't know a lot about.
