silenced dissent
This picture ran on the front page of the Portland Tribune today with the following caption_

An unidentified supporter of President Bush tries to silence protester Kendra Lloyd-Knox (right) outside Southridge High School in Beaverton.

This is one of those pictures that's truly worth one thousand words. It allegorically describes so much of what the Bush administration has practiced over the last few years. The stifling of dissent, the use of unnecessary force, and most of all, intolerance.

After all, if there's one thing in this world I can't stand, it's intolerance.
