May 2, 2015

The NYC Marathon brings the best out of New Yorkers, who cheer on passing strangers toward what they're striving for. The May Day march brings out the opposite sentiments towards those strangers.

I heard myriad murmured complaints about the marchers (scum, thugs, liberals)  and the causes they were championing (stupid, pointless, useless), but the most frequent was over the inconveniences that an exercise in civil disobedience inflicts upon an evening commute – and on a Friday!

Some people made the best of it. Many folks were out just to take photos and video. I spotted a few Facetimers® out there too. I was just one of hundreds of people with a camera along the march route.
