Staying away in droves

Why did only 750 people attend the recent Rally for the Valley in a city of almost half a million population? Here's the top 10 reasons why:

10. Moved to France.

9. Injured self practicing the "die-in."

8. Dog ate protest sign.

7. Bicycle had flat tire.

6. Messed up and drew peace sign upside down.

5. Ran out of new ideas on anti-Bush slogans.

4. Moved to Canada.

3. Stayed up too late watching "An Inconvenient Truth."

2. Marched in San Francisco instead.

1. What, no Joan Baez concert?
