i turned off itunes at my desk and stepped out of the showroom to observe the following demonstration today:
as i watched the union leader with a microphone preaching from the back of a truck, three thoughts kept running through my mind:

i'll be the first to admit that i'm pretty ignorant about what happened on century park east this afternoon, and why. i saw douglas emmett signs; and heard talk about security workers, contracts, and sick days. i searched the web but have little yield from my efforts. but based on the media presence, i'm sure it'll be on the news tonight and in the times tomorrow.
