So I went after all, but I missed the parade, which is probably the part I shouldnt have missed. Volunteer Park was crowded and bright. I think I'm probably going to regret not putting on some sunscreen. Didn't buy anything, except some lunch (mmm.. cajun blackend salmon). I was being tempted at the UtiliKilts booth, but I think I'll actually go to their factory/storefront when/if I decide to buy. (judyg has said she would like to see me in one). Sat on the grass with Pax and Ilsa and friends for a while. I didn't recognize him at first when he called to me, he looks different "in color".

A fair number of the standard issue Useful Idiots where there as well.
  • The Socialist Party USA. "Free The Detainees!"
  • The Socialist Workers Party. "Troops home! Now!"
  • The Socialist Freedom Party (who?!). "Splitter!"
  • The Radical Women's Party. "We demand free abortion on demand. We demand an end to forced sterilization. We demand immediate anti-capitalist action!". I didn't realize that "forced sterilization" was still an issue. When I asked her what "anti-capitalist action" was, all I got in reply was a withering "Men!" and then a Cut Direct. Wow, a living stereotype.
  • And a earnest pair of married old hippies who seemed to believe "if only we could tax away the CEOs excessive salary, we could fund free health care for all!".
  • Absent. The Pink Pistols.
  • Absent. The Log Cabins.



"Remember where you park, fool!"

Me, being stupid, forgot where I parked. I knew it was going to be an issue, I thought about it, when I locked up to walk away, that I should write down the intersection, or set a GPS waypoint. But no, I thought I could just remember it. Right. I had to walk a raster scan search on an 8 block by 8 block region to find it, and of course, it was almost at the end. Tired feet, my own fault.

I forget; am I (are we) the problem *again*, or the problem *still*? It's all very confusing for a capitalist like myself...

The problem,

I think that would be yes.

You are the problem again, because this person has decided capitalism is bad.
This tasty new hate filled idea gained during some conversation she had with a hot chick no doubt. :P

You are the problem still for those who have yet to wake up.

Re: The problem,

I think an appropriate occasion for a Utilikilt would be BiCamp. All the silly New Englanders would envy you and ask for the website. :)

I wouldn't mind seeing you in one (Kilt) either... and by the way, Log Cabin Republicans WAS there... on the grass, east side away from most other booths, I knew where they were because I got ill every time I ventured near.
