(That subject line was to inform about the mania that is the May Day Protest, going on down the street from me, not to instruct to protest against mania.) Lotsa people with signs and flags and drums, and a sea of cars outside my window on Everett waiting for them to go by so they can go home. I think it's bad to inconvenience people like that, but I guess that's why it's a protest. People are doing pretty interesting manouvers with their cars so they don't end up sitting in front of my apartment, and there are at least two helicopters hovering overhead. How interesting. What would have been more interesting is if they were coming up Everett street, right in front of my house. Maybe I'd stand in the windows and flash them.
