TUESDAY

It’s been little more than a month since folks fed up with the war in Iraq invaded the National Mall. Still, Arlington Independent Media has already released a video that “documents the ‘Operation Ceasefire’ anti-war concert and protest.” Were the events of that day affirming to those of us who wish President George and his cronies would just stop? Sure. Did they have the sweeping effect of multiple similar gatherings in the ’60s and ’70s? Well, not exactly; not yet. And sometimes it really seems as if no on is listening. Sure, it’s good to document the events of the day. But if you stop to congratulate yourself before anything’s really been accomplished, you might look like an ass in the end. Operation Ceasefire screens at 7:30 p.m. at the Arlington Cinema ’n’ Drafthouse, 2903 Columbia Pike, Arlington. $5. (703) 486-2345. (Mike Kanin)
