    Blair/Bush debacle - the Rice Solution
    ThreÕs a lot of anti-war spam around, all well-intentioned but spam nonetheless. But I have found time to act on one which Linda posted to me: The Rice Solution. Send Tony Blair half a cup of uncooked rice in a small plastic bag, wrapped in a piece of paper on which you have written "'If your enemies are hungry, feed them,' Romans 12:20. Please send this rice to the people of Iraq: do not attack them."

    Enclosed in a small jiffy bag, addressed to Rt Hon Tony Blair, 10 Downing Street, London, SW1A 2AJ, and posted off with £1.06 worth of stamps - I reckon thatÕs a simple act which will impact. At least symbolically, which is how protest works.
