A guy sort of rolled his eyes and churlishly mumbled, "Why should we care in the U.S. about some dumb French holiday?" All rudeness aside, I decided to explain it to him. I love talking to churlish brick walls. I'm like a perky, blond Sisyphus.

It doesn't appear that 99% Spring, despite trying to ready tens of thousands of people for escalating civil disobedience, resulted in very disruptive actions in Charlotte. On the plus side, there's more than a month of spring opportunities left.
