I didn't get arrested or teargassed...

I headed down to downtown St. Paul after work today to try to get standby tickets for The Daily Show. The line was too long for me to make it in though. *sigh* I might try again tomorrow afternoon.

When I headed out after that I saw a crowd at the capitol building so I parked and wandered over with my camera. It was a peaceful anti-war demonstration. When it was time for them to disperse when the permit expired at 5pm they started marching toward the XCel Center. The police blocked them at the bridge and didn't let them go any further. I took some pictures and then headed home.

*edit*
And here's a link to the STrib article about where I was.

This guy was actually on stilts. The other people behind him are standing 2 feet off the ground on the edge of the bridge.
