Bridging the Gap

[From World Can't Wait] The world of contract bridge was jolted when the championship team of 4 women from the U.S. held up a sign saying “we did not vote for Bush” at a banquet following a recent world tournament in China. The U.S. Bridge Federation has reacted with venomous threats worthy of Alberto Gonzalez or Dick Cheney because these women dared to speak the truth in a creative and visible way, in an international forum. But telling the truth about war criminals is no crime – many more people, in all spheres of life, can learn from these women, and disrupt the complacency of everyday routine with acts that call out the war criminals, and let the world know they do not represent us.
