salutations to all from Washington D.C., where yours truly was lucky enough 
to be one of well over a hundred thousand people downtown in the largest 
antiwar demonstration in D.C. since the Vietnam war. It's just nice to have 
been part of one little thing in the world that went right for a change...

and while I'm writing, I'll just add that all you poor bastards in Europe 
have my deepest sympathies. And I, too, would very much like it if the Oils 
would tell their fans what's up with these cancellations. It didn't affect 
me personally, but I really don't understand why this generally nice, 
intelligent, hardworking band can't be just a little more forthcoming in 
informing their fans. Is that so much to ask? Maybe someone who talks to 
the band could just pass that general sentiment along in a diplomatic way...
