2. Good on you!

You got quite the bang for your buck really. Very proud of you to stand out there, mostly alone. Your voice was the one heard in your town. Awesome!

3. I know I'm hearing it wrong...

But it sounds like they're saying things like, "Reporting live from Stupidville."

What's the actual name of the town?

7. A lot.

She was trying to convince me that all law is based on morality. I argued that ethics and morality are related but distinct. I think I used a beehive analogy. Bees have morals, hives have ethics. Something like that.

9. We had almost no advance warning

And as I said everyone had recently turned out to protest the governor so I think they decided not to stress the police unnecessarily and that it wasn't worth trying to organize on the fly.
