Living In The Past

At least Vietnam War protesters knew why they protested.

In New York today?

They're against "corporate greed on Wall Street, global warming and social inequity, among other issues."

One can presume that the "other issues" includes the news that Ashton Kutcher has been cheating on Demi.

To the ramparts!

Anything.  Everything.  Nothing.

700 protesters were arrested yesterday.  Such a waste of human brain matter.

Here's the bright side: For a few brief hours, while these nitwits were incarcerated, the collective IQ of the nation rose.  And then fell, upon their release.

Oh, well.

Think those protesters were out there hoping to actually accomplish something?  How about this?

"I actually think it's kind of ridiculous," said a dreadlocked 20-year-old who identified himself as Pigpen. "The only reason 500 people are here is because they think [rock band] Radiohead is going to be here."

Not exactly the stuff that drove Martin Luther King to take to the streets.

Planning doesn't seem to be their forte either:

A crowd of more than 2,000 people ... massed outside what some mistakenly thought was NYPD headquarters.

Check this out.  Journalists.  What would we do without their unbiased reporting of the news?
