Man Will Walk 500 Miles To Impeach Bush and Cheney

John Nirenberg, a hearty New York City native and current resident of Brattelboro, Vermont, intends to be standing when he reaches Washington, D.C. around January 10, at the conclusion of a scheduled 40-day walk that began in Boston on December 1.

Update: Ending A Journey: Walk For Impeachment Reaches Goal, But Fight Not Over

WASHINGTON - John Nirenberg took his last step in a 40-day walk Saturday. But he described it as his first - vowing in his characteristic quietness to push forward with the promotion of impeachment.
He and about 14 supporters embarked on the final leg of a 480-mile walk between Boston and Washington Saturday morning, dodging roadside debris and swinging wide around several sidewalk sleepers during the 4.7-mile route to the National Archives - home to the Constitution.
Nirenberg, a 60-year-old professor at Marlboro College, chose his last step alone, in a grassy strip across Constitution Avenue from the pillars and white steps of the Archives.
“This is where it all began,” he said quietly to a nearby supporter before pausing, then added, “Or ended.”

Hmmmmmm Must be mental pause again.
