WTO Update

Police used pepper spray and tear gas on incoming protestors. It’s completely crazy in Seattle right now. My friend Steve works in downtown Seattle and he mentioned seeing a cloud of tear gas waft by where he works this afternoon.

The sad thing is all the violence and rioting that broke out today completely undermine any legitimate protests. What a mess. I wonder how long it’s going to take downtown Seattle to recover once the conference is over?

Hmmm. Looks like Nedstat is broken right now. I tried to check the hits for my weblog and it told me I didn’t have an account with them. Since I knew Lake Effect used this service as well I tried its link and came up with the same result. Lame.
