Utter BS


If I was Jerry Orbach in L/O, I'd be all over this:
Amtrak Power Failure Delays Thousands to Anti-War Protests

Thousands of anti-war protesters en route to D.C. from major Northeast cities were delayed for hours due to an Amtrak power failure.

In a hitch for some coming to the protest, 13 Amtrak trains running between New York and Washington were delayed for up to three hours Saturday morning for repair of overhead electrical lines. Protest organizers said that held up thousands coming to the rally.

Organizers delayed the start of the march, originally planned to begin at 12:30 p.m., to wait for protesters arriving on the Amtrak trains. There were other reports of Metro delays in northern Virginia on the Blue and Yellow lines.

It made for a very long day. The Washington Metro also stopped running for awhile, delaying the arrival of protestors.

You know what? These guys in government are for real, if you ever doubted it. We'd better do something about what's going on (having been under a helicopter all day and with snipers watching from the White House roof).

Still pissed in Washington.
