Tony Blair cancels book signings amid antiwar protests

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair has joined the ranks of numerous politicians to have written their memoirs after leaving office. Since the release of "A Journey" earlier this month, however, Blair's tour of personal appearances and book signings have been accompanied by antiwar demonstrators and angry protests.
