Here's a glimpse of the Occupy Austin movement as it manifested itself yesterday in a march held before the UT-OSU football game. Those heading to the game formed a long march, too, only the football fans were a sea of burnt oranze, the OA marchers were adorned mostly with posters.
We went to the football game and it was something to behold. My first state university game. Quite a spectacle. There's so much going on, so much to watch, plus also a football game. Unfortunately the Longhorns lost, but that didn't stop anyone from having a good time. I will be recovering for a week from my weekend in Austin, because in Texas, like Texas, they party big.
There was so much more that went on in the 48 hours we were in Austin. All of it fun and interesting, including a behind the scenes private tour of the LBJ Presidential Museum. A visit to Allen's Boots. Great Mex and great American food. But, at the moment, it's time for a little rest.
