The hypocrisy of being in a 'no police zone' in order to 'protect black lives' and then have their own security team shooting dead black teenagers proved to be too much for a lot of them.The Seattle protesters have been evicted. From the sounds of things, the city waited until protest had run out of steam and fallen out of the news and then moved in to close them down. At least 13 people were arrested, which is not really that many in the circumstances. I suspect the protesters had run out of motivation by that time.
Seattle police start clearing 'occupied' zone, make arrests
If you want atmosphere then you need look no further than the college and high school games. American football doesn't interest me much but I have been to a few college and high school games and the atmosphere had a party feel to it with everyone having a great time.Doesn't stop American Football being utterly dull to me however. There was no atmosphere.
I like "Hail Mary" passes... bit like how the government expects the Army to repeatedly do on poor funding.... and we do... again... and again... and again.If you want atmosphere then you need look no further than the college and high school games.

I particularly enjoyed the tailgate parties before the game.

Saddam Hussein has spent the better part of this decade and much of his nation's wealth not on providing for the Iraqi people but on developing nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons and the missiles to deliver them."
-- President Bill Clinton (State of the Union Address), Jan. 27, 1998
"One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line."
--President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998
"If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."
--President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998
"No one has done what Saddam Hussein has done, or is thinking of doing. He is producing weapons of mass destruction, and he is qualitatively and quantitatively different from other dictators.""Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face."
--Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998
"He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
--Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998
"[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs."
Letter to President Clinton, signed by:
-- Democratic Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others, Oct. 9, 1998
"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
-Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998
"Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."
-- Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999
