I’ve walked a bit more of the floor this morning, going from the booth with all the pigs, to the ACLU, to the Muslim Public Affairs Council, to the guy in the shirt saying that cops support the legalization of drugs, to Canadian bloggers, some of these people just may be a bit out of place here, to a Japanese Film Crew, not entirely unlike my good friend Wayan. Why come to these events? I’m not real sure, because it’s clear at least some of the group aren’t real welcome here. They’re the brave ones this week, coming out despite cynicism and anger, racial overtones and misunderstanding, and I salute their bravery, their honor and their willingness to be pilgrims in an unholy land. Well done.
