Why I will not be attending the peace march on Saturday
I'm all for civil disobedience. For peaceably assembling. For street theater and the Raging Grannies and Code Pink and Veterans for Peace.
But if I see one person juggling while riding a unicycle, passing out 9/11 conspiracy leaflets, spouting about global warming, picking up hot chicks or in any other way using the event as an excuse for frivolity instead of a reason to express being righteously pissed off that billions have been spent, thousands upon thousands have been killed, millions have been displaced, tens of thousands have been wounded and hundreds have killed themselves, then the likelihood that I'll end up in jail is very high.
And I look terrible in orange.
