Is there more than one Audubon Park in Memphis? As a curiosity-seeker and former 60's DC protester (also a "tea" party, albeit the kind you smoke), I dropped by and didn't see a single pitchfork. Too bad the Fourth Estate was intimidated by a "middle-aged aggressive woman". That doesn't reflect well on the Flyer, you know. But I did note on YouTube that CNN apparently had the same problem in Chicago. It must be in the bottled water.
I was a bit disappointed, though. There were no giant papier-mâché puppet heads, no naked bicyclists, no international socialist solidarity booths hawking cheap gimcracks at inflated prices, and not a whiff of hemp on the breeze. One would have thought FoxNews would have at least ponied up for the puppets. At the left-wing protests, they bring them in on buses.
