Documenting the spectacular failure of individuals and institutions to function at acceptable levels.
Not the Circulator!!
fish in a barrel... these guys make it too easy: "i know, let's all stand still together for a minute at union station and then chant at a bunch of bewildered commuters... that'll get us out of iraq!"see here: http://dcist.com/2008/03/19/video_of_freeze.php
God hates them. That's why its raining.
That DCist video is ridiculous ... "Look at me freeze with my pensive face."
When it rains, god is peeing. Peeing on protestors!
Damas y caballeros, I understand your comments. It is hard to have your travel schedule altered for a moment in a big city. And it is easy to make fun of these guys, particularly because their reps aren't actually in D.C., and they tend to do dumb things like attack buses and good looking news reporters. I wonder, however, whether the alternative is working, if you juxtapose the United States with a "comparative" representative democracy where protest is much more active and government that much more responsive, like, France. (However, Texas is bigger than France). Read about LBJ's torment on this now ridiculed form of civil society, and how protests may have influenced to get out of that clusterfuck a year earlier. I know Cheney doesn't give a damn, either, because he is a impotent little man with a huge set of guns to play with. But what will it take to stop the daily use of torture/weapons of mass distruction in the name of "spreading democracy?" Do we honestly think Hillary or Obama will just end it? Sorry, off my horse now:-)
