Milton Glaser, a longtime friend of The Nation and the designer behind the “I ♥ NY” campaign, is back with a new idea: He proposes that New Yorkers welcome the GOP in August with a display of light. The plan emerges from a desire to show anger at what the GOP and the Bush Administration have done to our city, our nation and the world, while avoiding violent confrontations that could help the GOP in November. We urge readers to spread the word about this bright, peaceful and creative protest against the darkness of the Bush agenda (go to to download or e-mail), and we hope those in the New York area will help light up the sky on August 30.
