What the demo will show
Tomorrow will see a major demonstration against the war in Washington, which will be crucial for three reasons.
Non-whites 'more likely to be questioned at airports'
The report also shows that non-white Canadians are nine times more likely to be stopped than their white countrymen, and that non-white Americans were more than twice as likely to be stopped as they came off flights. It reveals that some officers referred to certain nationalities as "devious", "pushy" and "arrogant", relied on intuition and instinct to make their decisions, and described "rare occasions when, due to staff shortages, they had been instructed by chief immigration officers not to hold up any passengers at all".

Many more sons will die while the Democrats do nothing to stop the war
Days like these have become all too common in Michigan recently. As the nation marked the 3,000th military death in Iraq, eight families in the state were preparing to bury their young men. Every day bar New Year's Day saw at least one funeral here. Last Saturday there were three.
