Iconic photo of counter-protester with misspelled sign is now 10 years old


On March 23, 2003, the photo above, which has appeared on the Internet countless thousands of times in the past 10 years,  was snapped outside a Boeing missile plant in St. Louis.

The guy with the misspelled sign was demonstrating against several hundred antiwar protesters a few days after the start of the U.S. conflict in Iraq. I read somewhere that his name is Sullivan and that he’s from Decatur, Illinois. But the article did not include any other  photo of him — so I have my doubts.

I have relatives named Moran, all of whom are doing just fine in the brain department,  including one who got a perfect score on his ACT. But, of course, the sign in the photo above only mistakenly refers to Morans.
