A warm welcome was provided for our visiting dignitary.1500 of Calgary's
They were a fairly shameless crowd though, sneering as they shuffled past a silent witness.
Some of them actually had the gall to stand at the windows toasting protesters with flutes of champagne. This is who the song 'Eat the Rich' was about.A little after noon, my girlfriend who works in a building downtown sent me a text:
We can see snipers on
the roof of the Hyatt.
I'm being paranoid now.
There were several hundred protesters at the peak of things and some of the highlights have made the international press. The elite may have rushed to sit at the feet of a war criminal but ordinary Calgarians stood up and said this is our city, our country.
And Bush isn't welcome in it.
UPDATE: Mom just called. No Mom, I wasn't one of the people who got arrested. Love ya Mom.
UPDATE 2: Olberman covers it!
