Interesting story on May Day in Seattle, where immigration reform was the theme of the organized protest during the day. Given Washington state's recent decriminalization of wacky tobaccy, this was cute-
Another [sign] said to heck with weed, “ ... legalize my mom.”
Later, a black-shirted goon squad took the streets; the police had to stop them from taking five-finger discounts at a mall.
The crowd stalled out at Fourth Avenue and Pine Street while people tried to decide which direction to go. One woman said jokingly, “This is the downside of anarchy. We need a leader.” A few men started talking about going over to “mess with the cops.”
Three great oxymorons: jumbo shrimp, veteran suicide bomber and anarchist leader.
I wonder if May Day went peacefully in Lexington. It didn't even make news in the Herald Leader, so there was no anarchy at the University of Kentucky yesterday; at least not at a level worth noting.
