It would be nice to be able to make light of my last article, and its many entertaining and inspired comments, but it is pretty tough to do that given what happened at the end of Tuesday's May Day immigration protest culminating in MacArthur Park.

By most accounts, and as has been demonstrated by several different video recordings of the situation, there was an absolute loss of control on the part of the Los Angeles Police Department.
