I have been moving around the city (not downtown mind you) & it looks to be business as usual. All businesses are open. People are shopping, working, relaxing etc. I take this to be a failure. We should have devlared a long-durational protest from the moment we heard. That is past us now, so lets prepare for the 4pm thing. Though work will be over we have to (i suppose) trust the tactical planners. For the future lets think of an early morning event to shut down all bridges and major entrances from freeways (not on the freeways :) and major corporate, government, and military institutions. I'll see you in the streets. Let us make amends for the lost day through this evenings actions.
