Bix reports that the city's getting nasty about our recent protests, opting to keep arrested protestors in jail unless they can make bail. Some people have been locked up for jaywalking. The city says the protests are costing $200,000 a day, about which Bix has something more to say.

His run-in with the city over admission to a press conference is worth reading, too. Evidently, not being "corporate" means you aren't really press here, but I've got an inquiry into the mayor's press person on the issue, so I won't offer any commentary until I hear back from her.
