...I'm okay with being REALITY-based.

Welcoming Committee

Looks like ol' George W. got a nice welcome in Italy today.

Thousands marched across the city massed behind a large banner reading "No War -- No Bush."


Organizers estimated more than 100,000 took part in the march. Police declined to give an estimate, but Ansa news agency put the numbers at around 7,000.

The protesters were kept away from Bush, whose motorcade of around 20 vehicles swept past lines of riot police.

It's nice to have parades when you visit other countries.
