Came and Went

From all the blogs and news sites and forums I've been reading, 2.10 went by without visions of anarchist behaivor (think masked figures in black hoodies, throwing rocks and destroying property). Instead, the world was treated with various-sized groups (mostly dependent of the weather) with picket signs, demonstrating at window-shuttered orgs across the world. Peacefully. At times, humorously, as one group decided to do a "Rick Roll" (playing Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up")...a common on-line prank, as in, "I've been Rick Rolled!"when directed to a link, only to find it's a viedo of Lil ol Rick. Major lulz.

Anyway, if you take away the whys of the global picket, the gem is there...that today, young people who were for most part lableled as dispassionate slackers, for what ever reason why they did it, they, via teh Internets, came together for one cause. One reason. Planned in just a month, I think.

I can't even plan a vacation in that time.

And, Church of Many Copyrights, Church of the Bridge to Nowhere, I am now hearing "Beware the Ides of March".

I wonder, how many people who decided to jump on this band wagon in the begining, had no idea of "Operation Freakout", "Operation Snow White", Lisa McPherson's death, all the front groups of the "church" who claim they are not, like Narconon...

But they do now, and many others thanks to the Internet. Oh, but the church said they were going to "handle" the Internet.

How's that workin' for ya?
