Teachers College and Feb. 15th

Not only did I find a leaflet for the Feb. 15th antiwar rally on the
cafeteria table at lunch today, there is a big sign at the entrance to
one of the main buildings calling on students to demonstrate. You could
not post such a sign unless you had backing from the administration. A
label pasted on the leaflet calls on students to assemble at the Milbank
Chapel on campus at 10:30 Saturday morning, presumably to march to the
rally in defiance of the mayor's ban.

What a contrast to the months following Sept. 11, 2001 when the school
was awash in American flags and other pro-war paraphernalia. A sea
change is taking place in American society. If the USA cannot secure a
quick victory and a compliant Iraqi population, all bets are off.
