State of the Union 2007 Around the Capitol

I walked over to the Capitol tonight to check out what photographable stuff was going on in the area in the way of protest actions. Word was there’d be a big “State of Emergency” thingy, but when I got to the Grant Memorial, this is what I found:

I estimate about 25 people, some with signs, while on the Memorial steps someone in a Bush/Devil costume waved a plastic pitchfork as he (she?) pantomimed to live audio of the SOTU address. More photos here. I also got some pretty Capitol Dome pictures. Aren’t they pretty?

Roving Asian mendicant, can occasionally be seen wandering the streets of downtown Washington, muttering unintelligible gibberish to passers-by while pushing a “bag lady” shopping cart full of old blankets, American flags, soda cans, and healthy secondhand snacks from organic food shop dumpsters. Used to live in a cardboard box at 16th and K but the rent was too expensive.
