I was asked by S whether I was going on the March on Saturday. I was pleased with myself that I could be honest with her and tell her that it made me afraid to go on the march, because despite not wanting to bomb Iraq, I don't want to march with people who want me dead.

She was kind of shocked that I could interpret 'Freedom for Palestine', that way. She said that no one wanted me dead. But she is famously innocent. We call her Farista (Bengali for 'Angel') because she is so innocent. But on the other hand, it is possible I am paranoid...
