a snippet from the trib's streaming coverage of the immigrant rights march.

reading this just made me happy.

There is conflict with three or four skinheads on LaSalle Street. Charles Williams, deputy superintendent of patrol, takes a handful of officers into the crowd and kicks them out. The crowd cheers the police, chanting "paz. (peace)."

I saw one anti-immigrant protestor at the rally. She was a 50+-year-old white woman with rolling luggage and a sign. She almost got her ass kicked and while part of me thought she deserved, the diplomatic part was shouting "She's not worth it" to the crowd of people who were getting angrier and angrier.
