A Demonstration of What Exactly?
Bev S. 28.3.09
I love working in downtown DC! You never know what sorts of network news anchor or politician sightings might occur at any moment. For instance, over the past several years I have stood in line in front of David Brinkley at Ritz Camera, eaten lunch within view of Cokie Roberts, and witnessed John Kerry shaking hands with consultants. And then there are the random mystery demonstrations. As I was leaving work on Friday I smelled horse poop and saw lots of flashing blue lights and just had to investigate. It turns out the cavalry was called out to monitor a band of scruffy protesters who danced across Dupont Circle while blasting Dexy's Midnight Runners. I have no idea what they were demonstrating against.
