Tonight is a wilder night of street violence, as best I can tell from twitter.... After listening to the speeches on the radio and then watching coverage on the news, now twitter is the best source of information. How odd to be sitting here reading online while one part of the conflict happens a half mile at the university. Yes, obviously it's better this way. No, I'm not going out tonight to see it. One student has died, apparently run over by a police truck. All my classes for today are rescheduled for tomorrow, but we'll see what people think in the morning. The goal was to provoke police response, I think, and they got what they wanted. Reports of police firing at an ambulance won't help, either.
