The Local Protests

The patchouli and brimstone crowd was out in force in my neck of the woods yesterday chanting and sloganeering away to mark their displeasure at the Bush inaugural. I generally agree with them, but waving fists only demonstrates veracious disagreement (which everyone knows about anyway), it won’t change anything. Also, it makes it very difficult for those of us who want to solve problems, not just complain about them, to study. Why does protesting have to be accompanied by ear drum-shatering, tooth-filling vibrating, horrendous techno music?

Where’s Pete Seeger when you need him?
