  1. The usual good nonprofit groups with booths there at this peace fair: Sustainable Tucson, Progressive Dems of Arizona, ACLU of AZ, Veterans for Peace, the Green Party, Solar Store, etc. with food being sold by La Indita and Lovin’ Spoonfuls. Listened to the lively music of One Heartbeat (drums, percussion) and just now the Raging Grannies raging over corporate personhood and noisy DM overflights. More till 4 p.m. today under partly cloudy skies.
