I saw this online yesterday as it occurred in my city. A project done by an LA-based Iraqi Veteran Against the War set out 4171 toy US Soldiers at a gas station late at night (since the action, the number of US soldiers has climbed to 4,193). Not that many people probably saw this, but the art project (what else than a Tom Friedman homage this protest be?), it reminded me of an article my brother, Robby Herbst, wrote thinking about antiwar art and activism. Disparate actions towards a disparate climate (ie. no 3 tv networks, net 2.0, yadda yadda yadda) make a heck of a lot of sense.
