The downside to working in the state capital city is every once in a while protesters put a snag in my morning commute.  I don’t care what their angle is.  They clog the streets, don’t know how to use crosswalks, chant the same 3 words incessantly, and oftentimes loudly blast music so that my brain has difficulty functioning.  It is almost always either country music or music in a language that is not English.  Did I mention I work across the street from the capitol building?  So it’s an all day nuisance. ~AKH

Update:  Oh God.  The protesters today have bagpipes.
