peaceniks had a candlelight vigil at stonehenge that was well-attended; I'd guess 2-3 thousand people showed up.

After a parade of speeches, the vigil organizers proclaimed a "moment of silence", at which point some ROTC jarheads in the top floor of Cavanaugh cranked up Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries" -- started softly, but then built and built until the moment of silence was anything but. A yelling match between the podium and Naugh ensued and the whole thing broke down. Pretty hilarious.
