Pledge to ’stop this war' mobilizes tens of thousands
WASHINGTON (AP) — "fens of thousands rallied in the capital Saturday in an emphatic dissent against preparations for war in Iraq, voicing a cry — “No blood for oil” — heard in demonstrations around the world.
A rally in the shadows of Washington’s political and military institutions anchored dozens of smaller protests throughout Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the United States.
In Washington, police said 30,000 marched through the streets, part of a much larger crowd that packed the east end of the National Mall and spilled onto the Capitol grounds.
“We stand here today, a new generation of anti-war activists,” Peta Lindsay from International Answer, the main organizers, exhorted the spirited masses in a biting cold. “This is just beginning. We will stop this war.”
Veteran character actor Richard Crenna dies at 76
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Richard Crenna, the Emmy award-winning character actor who starred as a lovesick teenager on “Our Miss Brooks” and Sylvester Stallone’s Green Beret mentor in the “Rambo” films, has died. He was 76.
Crenna, whose credits also included “Wait Until Dark," “The Flamingo Kid,” and television’s “The Real McCoys,” died Friday of pancreatic cancer at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, daughter Seana Crenna said Saturday.
“This came very sudden,” she said.
Crenna’s role on the CBS drama series “Judging Amy” was recently put on hold as he battled cancer.
“He was one of the brightest, nicest, funniest and most talented actors I’ve ever worked with,” Sylvester Stallone said Saturday. “He was everyone’s friend.”
Crenna often played tough guys on screen, but at home he rarely lost his sense of humor, his family said.
“Even after 46 years, he had me laughing, even in the hospital,” his wife, Penni Crenna, said Saturday.
Crenna is survived by his wife and three adult children.
Family members were arranging a public service to be held Jan. 25.
