    did they also do it to kick sand in our faces?
    Hard to tell, and I guess, not the most important question.

    Sad that I even ask myself that question.

      when there have been big protest marches, a lot of people think there were media blackouts. This would have given the media something else to report about at exactly the right time.  Look what happened with Occupy. There was a media blackout for weeks when it started, until they could not ignore it anymore.  Then, Occupy Sandy wasn't in the NY Times for two weeks.

      TPTB don't like too much coverage of things that might stir up the public. They are terrified of protests and uprisings.  That's why they have informants, surveillance of freaking Quaker groups, etc.
