Crossing my fingers for my city this week
Edited on Tue Sep-22-09 08:28 PM by scheming daemons
Please, protestors... be boisterous and loud and proud of your cause(s).... but please don't be destructive of my beautiful city. Vandalism hurts your cause(s) more than it helps. Be large in number, loud in voice, and respectful of your "hosts". You'll draw more people to your side that way.


Please, participants... think of the common good for once in your lives instead of just the corporatocracies in your various nations... I know that is asking a lot, since you never have before, but try for once to think of how you could improve the world economic situation for EVERYONE, instead of just the few privileged.


and finally...


Please, secret service... do your jobs well. Pittsburgh doesn't need its own "Dealy Plaza".

8. When did what happen in which Niagara Square?
(I once lived in Buffalo, NY, so I'm curious.) Google was no help.

7. Having gone through the WTO in 2000,
you have my best wishes, scheming daemons. I hope you don't get the mob of "anarchists" that wreaked a lot of havoc here.

:)
