My office is smack dab in the middle of my government center. From it I can see the fed complex, the local courts/government/popo, the offices of our congressman/senator and numerous state and local offices. I can see most every protest that goes on. One day I saw a black guy on the steps of the courthouse with lots of black faces in the crowd and walked down to see what they were protesting. That usually happens whenever a black person gets killed by the cops and I had not heard of a killing recently. It turned out it was my first encounter with my local Tea Party protesting Obamacare.
