I went to eat lunch outside just now, joining Clarence, Jonathan, and Suzi at one of the chess tables in Dupont Circle. But our repast was interrupted by the IMF/World Bank protesters who marched up 18th to Mass Ave. and into the circle proper. The place is *bristling* with cops in riot gear, on motorcycles and bikes, and in squad cars. From what I could see nothing disastrous was going down, but we high-tailed it (at my request) to a less volatile corner of P St. to wait out the passage of the peeps. Notable: a woman on stilts and a (I think) man dressed in drag--pumps and everything--but wearing a George W mask. Yeah, no idea what that was about. Still, interesting to see.
