Neo-Con pundit William Kristol was creamed with a Pie last night 
while speaking at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana.

William Kristol, founder of the Project for a New American Century (a 
leading neo-con think tank) and a key figure in American foreign 
policy for over 20 years, was hit by what appeared to be a cream pie 
tonight in Richmond, Indiana. Throughout his speech, given at Earlham 
College, he defended the "Bush doctrine" of pre-emptive war and state 
terror and was in the process of comparing current policy challenges 
to those of the early Cold War when a young man calmly lifted himself 
onto the stage and
quickly walked to the podium, splattering a delicious dish all over 
the speaker as well as the college's president (collateral damage, 

Unfortunately, after a period of shock, many people in the audience 
stood and clapped to show support for Kristol (for a total of three 
standing ovations), including many self-professed peace activists and 
liberals who were afraid that this succulently sweet action would 
discredit Earlham College. They apparently forgot, perhaps due to his 
liability as a speaker, of Kristol's central role in the Reagan and 
Bush I administrations, his long efforts as a Harvard-trained 
political scientist to provide the intellectual justification for the 
Bush agenda of foreign intervention, and his current place as an 
architect of a war in Iraq which has claimed tens of thousands of 
innocent lives.

There has been an escalating hysteria among some sectors of Earlham 
College, which is supposedly dedicated to pacifist and Quaker values, 
demanding a range of responses from expulsion (if the confectionary 
offender proves to be a student) to the pressing of criminal charges 
against the as-yet-unidentified revolutionary baker. We will post 
more updates in the next days. Please be ready to support this bold 



"Beauty treatment"
The Washington Times,  March 7, 2005 Monday

Vogue editor Anna Wintour got a face full of dessert Saturday at the 
Paris fashion shows, when an animal-rights protester hit her with a 
tofu pie.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which is at odds with 
Miss Wintour's support for the fur industry, claimed responsibility 
for the incident.

Miss Wintour was not hurt by the attack and reportedly joked that 
tofu may be good for the skin.

Vogue magazine declined to comment.


"Never doubt that a small and dedicated group of people with pies can
change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

-Margaret Mead
