Peace pipes

by

At press time, it seemed our born-again chief was dead set on attacking Iraq. Bullets and bombs may drop before you can say the word, “Peace.” But there is respite in these dark times.

“Folk the War” music series begins at the Red Door Café at the First Unitarian Universalist Church, 4605 Cass Ave., Detroit on Saturday, March 29. The Black Ink Collective, Don’t Look Now Jug Band and George Shrub (the singing CIA agent) will perform. The series continues with an eclectic mix of poets, puppeteers and musicians April 5 and 9; doors open at 7 p.m. For more information call 313-841-3799.

And don’t forget: On Attack Day peace advocates plan to gather from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Detroit Naval Armory, 7600 E. Jefferson Avenue. For more information, call 248-548-3920.
