Incidentally, if you're just arriving here from Tropiary and, as of this writing, it's a safe bet you're not drop what you're reading and see Anna's photo-essay on Saturday's batch of protests in D.C.

Protests are great. In the end, it doesn't really matter if they're right or not. It doesn't even matter if the government (or whatever the protestee is) knows about it or not, much less pays attention. It doesn't matter if the protest makes a difference. It doesn't even matter if the news picks up the protest. What matters is, these protesters aren't bombing anything.
