Dance Party in Central Square!
24 Jul 2004
Last night in Central Square, Cambridge the city held a dance party for all. A couple of us in town for the DNC went over there after seeing a video showing at the Lucy Parsons Center in Boston. Three of us rode our bikes between the two and showed up at Central Square sometime before nine and ten pm.

It was quite an amazing sight. There were hundreds of people from the community out dancing in the street, with each other. Out here in Boston it is the first time that I have really seen people come together and just have fun together, which is something that I am all about!

Kerry Finally Answers the 40,000 Troops Q
23 Jul 2004
Modified: 11:37:17 PM
There has been much talk of the draft, especially with the 'stop loss' orders that already have 50,000 plus troops serving. Kerry has long claimed he would 'add 40,000 troops' to the army- but when Kucinich asked him about where the troops were coming from, Kerry avoided the question.
