Earlier this week, as I was riding my bike down Van Nuys Blvd. towards Ventura, I kept on hearing all these honking horns -- I thought someone must be holding up traffic and pissing people off.

As it turned it out, it was a group of twenty or so 40-somethings from protesting the War in Iraq, with a few signs telling people to honk their horns if they oppose the war too. Another group consistently shows up at Ventura and Laurel Canyon Boulevards in Studio City on Friday nights, but the Sherman Oaks group thinned out over the summer. According to one member, the Sherman Oaks protest, which could start being a weekly event again, might grow to a 100 people strong.

More pictures after the jump.

Congressman Howard Berman represents a part of Sherman Oaks, but doesn't really have a presence in the community, it feels sort of like he doesn't exist. Representing a different part of Sherman Oaks, Congressman Brad Sherman (talk about coincidence in name) has an excellent track record in the community with his representatives always showing up to community meetings all over Sherman Oaks.
