Denver: Pray for anarchy

With tear gas and riot batons, please:

With names such as Recreate 68 (what, re-create Nixon’s election?) and Unconventional Denver, joined by anti-authority stalwarts such as the Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army and Code Pink . . . the DNC protesters have long been up in arms about how they won't be given free reign of the Mile High City. They're already accusing the city of essentially planning to combat them with paramilitary tactics. Denver, for instance, has set aside a warehouse to hold detainees in case the protests turn into another Battle of Seattle; protest groups have already christened the facility "Gitmo on the Platte" . . .

Assuming the Denver PD are up to the job, I'll be able to sit on the patio outside the Supreme Court Cafe on 16th Street listening to the police batons cracking anarchists' skulls in the distance. Sweet music.
