Aside from the head shaking “I thought we got over this crap 30 years ago” reaction, the real money quote in this article is this:

The probable cause to arrest the protesters as they retrieved food from their parked van? They were wearing black — a color choice the FBI and police associated with anarchists, according to the police records.

Yeah, anarchists. Quite the DC scourge, them. I’d like to see some commentary from Cathy Lanier on this matter, particularly since she describes herself as proactive and says “Our information-gathering will be constant.”

Is this the kind of information gathering we can expect, Ms Lanier? Does that specialized unit still exist? How much more money does MPD plan to squander on lawsuits in the coming year?

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
