More on Obama in Asheville NC
Credit to Asheville Citizen-Times - President Barack Obama's cars and advance team arrives at Asheville Regional Airport Thursday morning. (Gary Civitello/Special to the Citizen-Times)
UPDATING: Still not much more but a video (Obama and Michelle eating at 12 Ribs) & news feed more from Mountain Xpress: here News sure seems to have muted the peace protests but am awaiting some good write-ups from the peace folk soon.
A dear friend and our son both reported on seeing the staff cars and the feeling of elation to see Obama so close to home. Sadly, as long as the wars/occupations and the crimes related continue to go on - there's certainly no enthusiasm on my part. (Except as we can use each opportunity for peace.)
From Asheville Citizen-Times - Not too much to this article except reporting the flurry that might happen for any celebrity. Notes on the GOP's comments and the Tea-party protest...
As expected, we'll need to look elsewhere for reports on those protesting the wars/occupations...

This Comment page is sorely in need of some PEACE & Justice comments soon (I plan to do so after taking pets for a walk): here
Back soon to give you some REAL reports on Peace Activism from peace friends in Asheville area...
