Pittsburgh/Beaver Protest, 2/28/01
Never managed to catch up with you [the rest of the protestors].
I ended up at the hot dog shop just down from McD's. About 50 Bush supporters
were there. They had been tipped off the Duhbyuh would stop there. The
suit fooled them, they were astonished when I unrolled my sign. The AWOL
angle really gets their dander up. I was interviewed by the Beaver Valley
Times, the Trib and was vidioed ( if there is such a verb) by Fox, KDKA
and a whole bunch of people. A couple of punks rushed me and tried to
take my sign, but I fended them off. The rips in it made it even more
effective, and the attempted assault made the crowd very uneasy.
