Last Saturday Eureka staged its own immigration protest. There were three counter protesters. (I was one) but you wouldn't know it to read the Times-Standard or watch Channel 3 news.

This was my first protest and it was a revelation. I found most (of) the crowd content to just wave their signs, apart from a lady who threw a cup of coffee at me as she drove by. But some were really foaming at the mouth. I must say I haven't heard that many F-words in a long time.

Actually I think I did them a favor. Rather than just standing around congratulating themselves on how enlightened they were and what a shame it is that all others didn't feel the same, I and my companions provided an outlet for them to vent their spleen (whatever that was).
