Edith Atkins, 99, Bush Protester

At noon today, from her wheelchair on Dag Hammerskjold Plaza, Edith Atkins, 99, told me, "I've been voting for 75 years, since the '30s. I can't let it all end with Bush!" I got a little choked up and shook her hand and asked for permission to take her picture. Her sign advocates for Bush to be charged with war crimes and crimes against humanity. I got plenty of other pictures and I'll be back out at the protest later in the afternoon, but I wanted you all to meet Ms. Atkins first.
