May Day's Great American Boycott

From my office building on the 3300 block of the Wilshire corridor I went down to the street to see the march. The subject for which they march is complicated. It's unfortunate, and it seems that the good, hard-working people are the one's who suffer for those who aren't. I respect all who respect me in return.

Great photos - I love the vibrant colors.

I also like the fact that it was so peaceful. (Though I don't know if there was much of a mess to clean up afterwards ... it couldn't have been worse than the marathon is.)

Yeah, it was really something. It's flash flood like, starting as a little trickle and building momentum, until it's overunning the street onto the sidewalk. I was on the median for awhile, then found a little tree on the curb to stand next to so I wouldn't get swept away in the flood of people.

I was thinking about the mess afterwards too, but this morning there's really no evidence of the hundreds of thousands of people.
