Get together with some friends, cardboard, black and white paint and some duct tape and have a painting party. All the better if one of you has an overhead projector. Right now the Bay Area and San Diego are in competition for Free Speech Capital of the U.S.A., but we're welcoming all comers.
"Daddy, Who's Osama?"
"Well Honey... Osama Bin Laden is a Very Bad Man that the Nice Mister President Forgot All About..."
"Why did he forget about him?"
"Well, you see, Nice Mister President wanted to get the Very Bad Man who tried to kill his daddy!"
"So what he did was lie to everybody about how the Other Bad Man was Very Very Scary and that we would have to get him!"
"Did we get him, Daddy?"
"Yes we did little pumpkin. And when we got him we said 'We Got Him!' You see, Nice Mister President and his friend Donny Rumsfeld said the way to catch the bad man was to spend billions and billions of dollars making explosions all over the Bad Man's Country, so that's what we did!"
"Did the explosions hurt anybody?"
"No honey, we make Special Explosions that only hurt Bad People. And infrastructure."
"Do the special explosions hurt little boys and girls?"
"Only the Bad Ones, darling... only the bad ones."
