Quote of the Day (yesterday's)

The rally brought dislocated residents together with protesters from the Common Ground collective, most of them young, white and bedecked with piercings, shaggy facial hair and other trappings of counterculture

The Picayune's description of Tuesday's protest of the closing of the St. Bernard Housing Project. It wouldn't be intentional that the description brings to mind terms like "outside agitator" or "trouble maker" or, even "gutter punk," now would it?

Yep, sound just like the kind of people you might mistake Chris Rose for.

Nice -- *very* nice catch. Most people don't catch how such subtle use of language colors stories.
