I hope everyone is keeping up with the story surrounding the RNC convention: Glenn Greenwald is doing a great job of covering it on his blog, so I'll just link to him, but here's the short version: police are raiding houses in which lots of young people live communally, "hippie homes," as they say, with heavy weaponry, and are terrorizing innocent people. They've detained journalists and innocent citizens without cause--so far, they've only charged people with things like "fire code violations," indicating that their purpose is to harass, not protect. The irony is, there might actually be some people out there doing something illegal (like invading a country under false pretenses?), but they're too busy terrorizing innocent kids to find out. Read the amazing details at Greenwald's blog, because it looks like the major media is (incredibly) going to ignore this.
