ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's narration of his visit to the supporters of the periodical "The Progressive," in the Seattle area on February 10, 2006. According to the author, he found that every workday at noon at least a couple of activists gather there to protest the Iraq War. One protester, according to the author, held up a huge yellow plastic sign with the words "Impeach Them All" written in large, black letters. Another protester showed him a list of the eighty-one signs he has made over the years. The author met Jerry Sommerseth, a protester who gives piano lessons when he is not picketing, says he has been at the corner of Kincaid and First Street for twenty years now, starting as a protester against Reagan's war in Central America. Sommerseth gave the author his business card, which says on the bottom: "War Is Terrorism."
