G-8 brings out a lot of protestors...even more will be in Chicago starting tomorrow. That worried me a bit for Thurmont's safety. I mean, my parents and sister still live there. I didn't like the idea of things getting out of hand with them in the vicinity. Everything has passed without incident, and for that I am grateful to the many law enforcement officials who had a part in keeping the peace. It still disturbed me to see images like the following happening in my hometown square.
|Guns in the square. True, loaded with bean bags, but still guns.|
|Hard to imagine this is the tiny town I grew up in.|
|This was the most unsettling of the images for me.|
