Occupy the Pioneer Day Parade!

 Well, we Occupied the Pioneer Day Parade and had an interesting time of it... complete with being sprayed with a hose by an irate college student who somehow equated us with the problems he faces in his future... the kill the messenger syndrome?
 We went last behind all sorts of folks. I was glad to talk to a fraternity with a Lorax float. Generally it was a long wait and then a fast walk through inscrutable and supportive watchers.
 There were about 30 of us. I loved the energy, the flowers, the fun...
 Strange and wonderful as we move through a world of difference and sameness. All together.
 Meanwhile, Michael and Bob brought up the rear behind us as a mini-contingent of Vets for Peace. I was glad Michael decided to finally join Veterans for Peace after all these years. Vets have so much moral authority to talk about why we need to stop squandering our resources on war.
