Thanks, Jeffry! I’ve been looking at photos of that action since Bush’s death, remembering the prevailing narrative then, and trying to spot friends’ faces. A couple of these are new to me, though.

I do understand the importance of challenging power and distorted history. Thanks for reminding me with your excellent story.
