That news story I’ve been meaning to write about for about two weeks now

On many many many many sites recently, this story from one of the main news agencies appeared:

Bush Motorcade Passes War Protesters

Saturday August 13, 2005 5:46 AM

CRAWFORD, Texas – President Bush and his motorcade passed the growing camp of war protesters outside his ranch Friday without incident.

As Bush passed on his way to and from a political fundraiser, law enforcement blocked two intersecting roads where the demonstrators have camped out all week. Officers required the group to stand behind yellow tape, but no one was asked to leave.

The motorcade didn’t stop.

Cindy Sheehan, the California mother who started the vigil along the road leading to Bush’s ranch, held a sign that read: “Why do you make time for donors and not for me?”

It was unclear whether Bush, riding in a black Suburban with tinted windows, saw the demonstrators.

Now, I understand the reason behind wanting to cover this story, I understand that if something had actually had happened to make this story become a story it would have been a great story, I understand all that.

However, as it stands, the story is this:

Car drives. People. Absolutely nothing happens.

Excellent. I do love the industry I’ve found myself in.
