From January 20, 2001:
….I quietly spread the word to other potential activists. On that bitterly cold day we set up a picket line in front of the county courthouse with everyone dressed in black and carrying signs [and a cardboard coffin emblazoned with the legend: “democracy”] in our “funeral for democracy.” We numbered thirty eight people and one dog. It caused something of a stir, but better still, it served to make us all feel like we were doing something positive by expressing our disdain….
I can’t believe we’re still going to be protesting this same shit sixteen years later.
