The mainstream media didn't really cover the inauguration protests though an estimated 15,000 turned out for them in San Francisco alone. [via sfblogs] I sympathize with the protestors and feel it's a good way to show support for a cause, but this kind of statment is ridiculous: "Another part of the group locked arms in front of the Gap. Store management informed the police that they would not arrest the protesters because it 'happens all the time'." I swear these types of protestors are plants for the other side. That's just idiocy.
