An unexpected encounter with Chicago NATO protestors

We went to see a play last night at Timeline Theatre, a great local company. The company rents space from a church on Broadway and Wellington,  which we learned was housing out of towners in to protest NATO.

The people on the street and in the church itself were the greatest collection of losers I have ever seen in my life.  But it was diverse.  The sidewalk was marked off in sections for blacks, Latinos, native Americans (though Prof. Warren was nowhere to be seen), gays and lesbians, and some others.
A fair number were clearly mentally disturbed, screaming, accosting people who were walking into the theatre.  

Today should be pleasant with the mob in 90 degree weather.
