An Imaginary Tour of Pennsylvania Avenue

Pennsylvania Avenue Closed Front View

They are big enough for the President to read the messages if he looked out the window of the White House – and was using binoculars. On this quiet Saturday afternoon, only a few protesters are on hand. One has two signs. The first sign says "Peace on Earth, Goodwill to Men." The other sign informs people that the protester is "Fasting for a Kinder, Gentler Nation." ("Kinder gentler nation" is a phrase President Bush made famous.)
