Things That Make You Go, "Hmmmm"

Today at lunch I had a talk with my coworkers about the protests, and two of them said they'd gone to the big protests the other day. One, a professor of literature, was basically just there to check it out and see what all the fuss was about. The other, our computer dude with the cute butt, said he was there despite the fact that he favors the import of US beef. He said he went because of the fun, festive atmosphere (he plays in a 풍물 troop that went to go bang out some tunes) . . . and because he felt that the government was being unresponsive. In other words, as I said in my previous post, these rallies no longer have a unifying purpose and meaning for at least some of the people attending.
