Still open, just quiet.

Curious what happened in the Boston area today.
The same right-wingys from a weekend earlier this year,
which attracted counter-protesters in their tens of thousands,
decided to give Boston another try.

Their request for permission was refused, the radio soundbite said;
they planned to show up anyhow.
But they had made their intentions known with the earlier request.

According to the radio announcer soundbite:
the right-wingys did their thing and left.
A modest number of counter-protesters attended.
And all were outnumbered by public enforcement officials, everywhere and all over the place.
Peaceful . . .
. . . doesn't mean what it used to?
