Augusta Update: via The Golf Channel, the Associated Press says Jesse Jackson wants a piece of the action:
The Rev. Jesse Jackson's Rainbow/PUSH Coalition has requested an application for a permit to demonstrate at The Masters in April.

Jackson's group has indicated it will protest in support of Martha Burk, the chairwoman of the National Council of Women's Organizations, who is leading the fight against the Augusta National Golf Club's all-male membership.

Burk currently seems to be planning a modest demonstration, though it's not clear if she'll try to get arrested if local authorities put her group out in a pasture someplace.

In any case, she's not thrilled about Jackson.
Burk expressed concern that too many other organizations will attach themselves to the protest and cause trouble.

``I don't want a cast of thousands down there,'' Burk said at a news conference at Bowling Green University's student's union Wednesday. ``I think it will get chaotic and we won't get our message across.

``If I parachuted into the first tee, they wouldn't show it. If you want to get on TV, stay outside. That's why I'm staying outside.''

Burk thinks her request for a permit will be denied, and she has not ruled out an illegal demonstration.

``We're not planning to do anything illegal. We're not planning to do anything disruptive,'' Burk said. She quickly added, ``It won't kill me to get arrested.''
