Tri-Met celebrates MayDay???

What were they thinking?!? Maybe they ARE actually a bunch of pagans and will have a spectular Maypole dance...
Plastered all over town are posters inviting folks to a street fair on MayDay on 6th Ave in Old Town, Chinatown - beginning at the same time as thousands will be marching from South Parks Blocks. And if last's years police presence is any indication, downtown should be a pretty interesting place.
Conspiracy theory would say this is an effort to divert people from real MayDay action - but, alas, it just plain not-conscious stupidity.
and some good OT for TriMet's private army, Wackenhut.

In the 70s, feds would post phony fliers for events with incorrect dates, times, and locations to create confusion and make organizations appear incompetent.
