Respectful Insolence is a repository for the ramblings of the aforementioned pseudonymous surgeon/scientist concerning medicine and quackery, science and pseudoscience, history and pseudohistory, politics, and anything else that interests him (or pushes his buttons). Orac's motto: "A statement of fact cannot be insolent." (OK, maybe it can be just a little bit insolent.)
When Santarchy goes only a little bit bad...
Less than a week ago, around 200 Santas marauded around downtown Detroit in search of fun and booze. My sister happened to take part, and she's provided some pictures. The reports that I'm getting back reveal that, unlike the case in New Zealand, in Detroit a good time was had by all with no arrests, although the Santas did try to invade the skating rink at Hart Plaza and were chased away by the Detroit Police.
This just goes to show that Santarchy isn't just for the young (reassuring when you reach my age.)
Nothing like a fire-eating Santa to liven things up!
Punk rockers and many Santas.
What on earth are the Santas doing to that bunny? I don't want to know...
Santas flamboyantly protesting getting kicked off the skating rink.
I still have a couple of unused posts left (alas, not Santarchy, though); so stay tuned...
