Handing out baseball bats to the PML contractors? Frankly, Marty, I would have divided your article into two parts (I was going to say post but this is an article). That act alone speaks volumes, and should have caused major disention among the two groups—and not just because the contractors could end up being guilty of assault with a deadly weapon. Those baseball bats represent the whole condition of protest and power, the unthinking that exists whenever both sides think they’re right (oil interests always think they’re right). The bats also show how primal we are, given the right circumstances. Good story, though. Thanks for posting.
