So what happened? Granted I showed up to the square at around 12:45 slightly tired from Friday Nights pre-rally Strategy Meeti.... ok I was getting drunk, but I still arrived seeing about 10 strong souls sitting on a blanket in the middle of the Square and one Sign Noting that: Kerry's statement of succession held no legal grounds. There was also a younger group of 20 or so Abercrombies (no offense intended) that gained in numbers as more of their ranks made their way out of Starbucks and back from Sbarro's at which point it seemed they took off towards the mall. There were also of course the bystanders sitting around on the outskirts not wanting to join the "rally" just yet but waiting for something to happen non the less.
As for the the "Law Enforcement's" presence I noticed about 4 Tri-met Explorers with attached employees sitting in their vehicles across from the square and I noticed about 4 what I assume to be also Tri met workers on bike with yellow police jackets sporting "Security" on their backs and laughing as they gazed around at the dispersing Catalog shoot. At this point having hung around the square for about an hour I decided to head home for some comfort in watching Fox News to see what my Messiah (re)Elect *cough*STOLEN*cough* was planning on for his next miracle to win the hearts of the world community. As I rode down Water Front Park to head back over the Hawethorne I came from out underneath the bridge to loop back up to find a group of 15 or so Portland Brand Bicycle Cops apparently organized for some good ol' quelling of social unrest. So again I say "The Police were organized... what about the activists?"
