President Bush Visits Greeley

During the 2004 presidential campaign, President George W. Bush visited my city in Northern Colorado (Greeley).  Here are the some pictures from that event.  You'll see how close we were to him (about 60 feet) but sometimes it was difficult to see.  People were putting kids on their shoulders or waving signs in the air.  In the end he got down on the floor and shook hands with the audience.  The last few pictures show the media frenzy.  The room was rather dark except for the stage so the camera had a difficult time focusing.  Some of the pictures will be a little fuzzy.  I scaled them down to 800 x 600 but if you want a copy, send me email and I will get you the originals.

Is this a peace symbol
or upside down cross?

CND stands for British Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. The logo was originally designed in 1958 for the Direct Action Committee Against Nuclear War. It was designed by Gerald Holtom:

"I was in despair. Deep despair. I drew myself: the representative of an individual in despair, with hands palm outstretched outwards and downwards in the manner of Goya’s peasant before the firing squad. I formalised the drawing into a line and put a circle round it."



The logo is a semaphore for the letters Nuclear and Disarmament, but also it’s a self portrait. The logo is widely known as the peace symbol.

A cross with the arms broken, signifies the “gesture of despair,” and the “death of man.'’

Quotes from letters Bertrand Russell, the president of the CND at the time, wrote in response to H. Pickles from Lichthort Verlag who wrote to complain that the peace symbol was a death symbol because the arms pointed downwards.
Russell’s reply:
“I am afraid that I cannot follow your argument that the ND badge is a death-symbol. It was invented by a member of our movement as the badge of the Direct Action Committee against Nuclear War, for the first Aldermaston March. It was designed from the naval code of semaphore, and the symbol represents the code letters for ND. To the best of my knowledge, the Navy does not employ signallers who work upside down.”
