you are not my typewriter
{Sunday, April 23, 2006 . circus protest}


I spend the weekend protesting the circus that came to Assembly Hall.

I've decided I don't care much for protesting.

You get verbally abused, for one thing.

And you waste your energy trying to win over people who will never agree with you anyway. You don't actually get any real information across - just slogans that are short enough to write on a sign. It's generally pretty pointless.

Next semester, I want to do a vegetarian forum at Allen Hall. We can have speakers, and there can be a real exchange of practical information and substantial ideas. And if we do it in Allen Hall (the liberal dorm), we can reach people who might actually be affected by it and care, instead of people who will flip us off as they rev the engines of their F150s.
