ICME: Messages at the Festival of Books

img_0817-wince.JPG
These two messages caught my eye at Saturday’s L.A. Times Festival of Books at UCLA:

1. A man with a t-shirt featuring George Bush and Dick Cheney that read: “War Criminals” and “Impeach.”  The man also wore an orange ribbon on his t-shirt.  Of the many meanings his ribbon could symbolize, I suspect his intent was to call for closing the Guantanamo Bay prison facility.

2. A bumper sticker in a car’s rear window that read: “When Jesus said ‘Love your enemies,’ I think he probably meant don’t kill them.”

I looked for but never did find the third message to complete the thought: “Who Would Jesus Impeach?”

  1. Did you hit Conspiracy Theory Row?

    At any rate, the orange ribbons is from whacktivists World Can’t Wait (it’s on his shirt). They pass out orange ribbons to protest whatever it is they’re protesting that day. The lady on Saturday gave one guy 5 reason to wear the ribbon.

  2. Yeah, there were *way* more 9/11 conspiracy nuts this year than at previous festivals. Don’t people care about Roswell or finding JFK’s real killer anymore?

  3. No, the orange ribbons are from the ACLU to protest Gitmo, which is a stain upon our American values.
