After 155 years, Marines no longer guarding crypt of Led Zeppelin bassist @ 10:54 am

I forgot to mention two funny things that happened while we were downtown yesterday. I love going to downtown Portland for the sole purpose of experiencing funny things like this.

We were walking to Powell's and we walked past a protest. No big deal there are protests downtown practically every other day. This particular protest was against fur, complete with posters of animal corpses skinned only for their fur. Pretty gruesome stuff, but really not all that unique when in the context of downtown. The funny part was the the fur store they were picketing was actually having a protest sale! During the protest there were having a 50% off sale. Crack me up!

Once we got to Powell's I was wandering the Sci-Fi section looking for some Xanth books, and some Ender's Game books and I walked past the Star Wars book section. I'm not into Star Wars books, but I know a lot of people are, and Powell's certainly caters to that. As I walk by I see this guy walking by the other way. He sees the Star Wars books, sort of does a double take and says to himself, "Hmph, someone that actually has more Star Wars books than me" and proceeds to peruse the section.

Oh and we saw a guy dressed in pirate garb. Like plain loose clothes, and leather moccasins, and a rope belt. No eye patch though.

Good stuff. I love downtown!
