The March for Life

I did manage to dismiss the weeping retainers and elevate myself from my palate of pain yesterday to take a look at the Washington March for Life coverage on EWTN. If you're interested, I think they said you can view it on their website. I couldn't actually find it, but that doesn't mean it isn't there. (It doesn't even mean it isn't obviously there in a prominent position.)

The challenging part of the March for Life always occurs the next day: trying to find the Times's coverage of it. That can take longer than doing the crossword puzzle. If you missed it, it's on page A12, down at the bottom in the lower left corner, in the "Nation in Brief" section. It's subhead is "Bush Welcomes Roe Protestors". There's a little picture, too. It's 3 1/2" by 2" and appears to show some people dressed for winter carrying signs, one of which is white on black and may say "Life".

What did the Times find important yesterday? Well, the main headline on page one says "L.A. Schools cut building plans as enrollment falls".

Say. . . .you don't think. . . .

Nah.
