The Anti-Flower Child

Normal, IL

#1 Nov 17, 2011
This isn't surprising. All the ISU kids ever do, they do for 24 hrs. Like the "homeless for a night" crap, every year. Next morning, here's a mike in the face of some smiling young person: "Oh, I get it now. I understand." No, you don't. Nor do you understand protest. This is just more nicey-nice, "I'd like to make a point, but Mayor Koos says we have to disperse, soon" happy crappy. Unlike NYC and all around the world (which, mind you, I'm against from the jump), it means Nothing.
Victory of any sort, including putting your point out there so others hear it, COSTS SOMETHING. This, here in town, is No Price.
...which, I would expect, in a place where "up" and "down" have interchangeable definitions.
