“In a certain sense, this is a wake for the U.S. dollar.”
There were no NOLA type jazz funeral bands playin', of course. Kinda wish there were, to startle the vacationing lunch bunch capitalists on Church Street.
TODAY, a group of people of varying political persuasions (including moi) held a protest downtown by the Democracy statue on Main Street (between Leahy's office and the County Courthouse). Protesting the proposed shameful swindle by the Federal Government with its corporatist Secretary of the Treasury on the citizens of this land. The Burlington Free Press covered the protest. We marched up Church street, too, and stood in front of the Federal Building on Elmwood and Pearl. Major local television media and the community's intrepid Channel 17 videographer were there, too. So check the news programs this evening.
I'll update with pbotos I took later on.
