…that is an interesting bit of syncronicity.

Much like China jailing a bunch of protesters during the Olympics, and the US complaining, and then the US arresting and jailing a bunch of people who were planning on protesting at the Republican convention beforehand, on charges like “fire code violation”[1].

And the US isn’t protesting. And the mainstream media aren’t covering it, unless I missed it. Read more about it at feministing, their followup, and of course, Glenn Greenwald, who is always worth reading.

And since you’re playing Syncronicity[3]…

Changes – Yes

And an appropriate followup for my last post would have been “Sweet Transvestite“, from the Rocky Horror Show, Sean. Since you weren’t sure how to follow that up… 🙂

[1] You see, having a door that’s been bashed in, and is hanging off the hinges breaks the fire code[2]. Even when the police ( & FBI ) were the ones that bashed it in (without showing a warrant).

[2] Honestly.

[3] Which I do really like.
