As always, when there are shows, the cops patrol the area around the garden. We had a good team of cops last night. They talked to us with respect, reminded us about the physical boundaries of the garden, and that was it. No macho displays, no attempts at intimidation. Some cops can act like, well, like themselves, you know.
Demos are scheduled for this entire weekend. Complicating last night's leafleting was the Wizard of Oz, a program showing concurrently with the circus. For my purposes, a family with kids usually meant they were circus-goers, but not last night. In many instances, I had to asked if they intended to watch the circus or the Wizard of Oz. Some people don't want strangers asking what they're business is, but I wanted to engage the circus-goers and not just any passerby. I sorted them out anyway, got into several mano-a-mano discussions about the circus' cruel ways.
