Where are the demonstrations?

I've been listening to the news almost compulsively for years now. And I'm awestruck...and not in a good way...by the lack of public protest against the war in Iraq. Has the anti-war movement really been castrated by the Internet? Yeah, there was a memorial vigil tonight. Yeah, there's a weekly peace vigil in Beaverton. But where are the protest rallies? Where are the people taking to the streets?

I have to quote Arlo Guthrie, and that scares me. "If you wanna end the war and stuff, you gotta sing loud."

(I feel better having typed that.)
