Touring the Mardi Gras war zone
Just got back from a brief tour of downtown. Couldn't stay long because I have to be up for a job interview tomorrow at the crack of dawn but here's a prediction: PPD is going to top last year's arrest numbers. I wouldn't put cash money on it but I have a sneaking suspicion they'll get past fifty. As I came back to the westside off the Burnside Bridge, police were responding to four separate incidents within a three block radius.
If I wake up tomorrow and see riot footage on NW Cable News, I may just cry in my Cheerios. I love civil disobedience. Ask anybody.
