High points of the day included seeing the shirtless drunk or stoned guy trying to give his money to passerby and then collapsing unconscious on the concrete stairs. He rose 5 minutes later only to knock over a section of hurricane fence, and then repeat the money-giving attempts. No one seemed to want the slightly bloodstained bills, however, and some friends bore him away to wherever it is that drunk or stoned shirtless guys go on such occasions when they have not optioned for the evening-ending drunk or stoned brawl with officers of the law.
Then, one of the guys standing next to me says, "hey, look, there's an American flag at a Rage Against the Machine concert--you know that'll be going up in flames before the nigh is through."
Get with the program. Burning flags are so Battle in Seattle.
