does a moderately decent
job of covering the TABD protests.
Not many howlers outside of reporting that the groups "all fall under the umbrella of opposition to globalized markets".
I fell into a contingent of fellow Chicago Wobs and marched with them, it looked to me like the march
picked up at least a few extra hundred from the curious
mob of onlookers. I showed up late to the party on Friday, marched around looking for marchers,
ran into a small army of Chicago's finest and Clare at
the Daley Plaza, found one of the marches heading up Michigan (five or so paddy wagons and a dozen cop autos
snaking behind in what appeared to be an extravegent, expensive display of solidarity) and chanted along for
a few blocks before getting dinner from a nearby ghoulish corporate enterprise that was proffering what were,
considering the gaping crevasse of hunger embroiling my internals and the two martini lunch I had at work, pretty
good burritos. Plus: The Happy Police.
