(Newser) – Tony Blair may well wish he'd been drinking for today's book-signing in Dublin: Several hundred anti-war protesters awaited the former PM as he arrived at a bookstore in the city center, hurling everything from epithets to shoes, eggs, and a bottle, reports the Irish Times. The book-signing was the first since Blair released his memoirs this week, and the Times notes that those hoping for his John Hancock outnumbered the shoeless by 3 to 1.
