A symbolic blast from the past

It’s been said that you can judge a man by the quality of his enemies. When I first heard about the protests against Secretary of State Powell’s planned trip to the Olympics, I chalked it up to the knee-jerk anti-Americanism that is all the rage these days. I especially found it amusing that they misspelled “Powel” on their big banner.

But it wasn’t until I got a real good look at the banner, seeing past the misspelling, that I noticed the big symbol on the far right.

Secretary Powell, you’re doing something very right. Keep up the good work.
